“Our students and their families are very appreciative of the Power Packs they receive, and this is made possible largely through the Power Grant,” said Cynthia Ruich, Director of Student Services. “Thank you for your continued support!”
The Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona received $2,000 for their summer camp on Mt. Lemmon. Girl Scout camp provides girls with the opportunity to connect with nature, participate in educational environmental and Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programming, and develop practical life skills. Twenty-one girls in Trico’s service area were able to attend camp.
“Your support of our resident camp scholarship fund has leveled the playing field for underserved girls by providing the means for them to go to camp,” said Debbie Rich, Chief Executive Officer. “You are giving an incredible gift of lifelong memories and formative experiences to future leaders, as well as their caregivers, and for this, we cannot thank you enough.”
Mt. Lemmon Fire used its $1,500 POWER Grant to bring the district into compliance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements.
“Thank you again for the opportunity to become better at serving our community and for the opportunity to operate more safely,” said Mike Cuestas, Mount Lemmon Fire Captain. “We are now compliant with mandated air testing and air fill procedures.”
With your help, we can continue to support the community. POWER Grants are funded by the Trico Electric Charitable Trust, which receives donations from Members who choose to round up their bill to the nearest dollar. Click here to contribute to Operation Round-up.
