Idaho-based company donation supports hungry families, 4-Hers
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) - Two Idaho organizations received donations thanks to Valley Wide Cooperative.
Valley Wide donated $11,000 to Curds + Kindness, a hunger and dairy farmer support program. The donation will provide over 5,000 pounds of dairy products to Idaho and Utah communities in need. Valley Wide also donated $10,000 to Idaho 4-H and University of Idaho Extension programs. This will help families that have been impacted financially by COVID-19 with enrollment fees for their children to be a 4-H member.
“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.”
