Valley Wide also donated $10,000 to Idaho 4-H and University of Idaho Extension programs.

“There was eligible grant money from one of our cooperatives that we’re a part of through their foundation and their stewardship program,” said Carley Weaver, communications specialist for Valley Wide Cooperative. “And I applied for some of their grant money and wanted it to go towards 4-H, and we were approved for a grant. They matched $5,000 from us with their $5,000 we were able to donate that towards Idaho 4-H.”
