Local donations give back to the community

The spirit of generosity is off to a strong start this year in Sweetwater County. Several large and important donations have been made recently that contribute to programs that serve the community.

The Boys and Girls Club of Sweetwater County recently received several donations from organizations including the Rocky Mountain Power Jim Bridger Power Plant and Church and Dwight's Green River Plant Employee Giving. Employees at Jim Bridger chose the club as their Employee Giving Campaign, which raised $1,944. Church and Dwight also gave money from their Employee Giving program to the Club, donating $3,600.

"The Club is very thankful and truly appreciates those who give to help support our members and their families," a press release said.

The Boys and Girls Club also does their part to give back to the community as well. Recently club members Franny C., Rue K. and Fisher C. created a special project that was up for auction at the Kari's Access event, which helps provide funding for Sweetwater County School District #1 youth so that they can participate in a variety of activities.

"They are a huge part of our program and we are proud to support the event," the Club said.

Other recent donations have gone to support the YWCA of Sweetwater County and United Way of Southwest Wyoming, which provide important resources to the community.

The employees of Genesis Alkali and United Steelworkers Local 13214 made pledges during the 2023 workplace campaign and donated $55,807.

Elysha Dean's Allstate Insurance office recently donated $2,000 that was raised during Domestic Violence Awareness Month to the YWCA of Sweetwater County.
