Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) For the past 25 years, Business Plus has been providing economic support to numerous businesses and organizations.
Thursday afternoon, the organization received two large checks.
The Farm Bureau donated one thousand dollars and Idaho National Laboratory gave away an economic development grant worth more than 19 thousand dollars.
That grant money also went to the College of Southern Idaho Foundation and SIEDO.
"My team is very proud to be part of the economic development in this region. We have the agency force and the products and our Idaho based insurance company that can meet the needs of a growing economy," says Randy Palmer, Farm Bureau Insurance.
"The Magic Valley put together a powerful combination this year for a great proposal, the College of Southern Idaho Foundation, SIEDO, and Business Plus, and together they really want to focus on economic development and driving job growth in the Magic Valley and creating tomorrow's work force," adds Stephanie Cook, Idaho National Laboratory.
The money will go to support SIEDO and develop jobs throughout southern Idaho.
