Photos: Boy Scouts' Grand Canyon Donation
December 26, 2014 at 12:05 am
Our January issue features Scouting Trip, an Annette McGivney story about Boy Scouts of America Troop 65 from Wood Dale, Illinois. The Scouts hiked the Grand Canyon in July, and in addition to hiking rim-to-rim-to-rim, they also delivered a $4,500 check for replacing picnic tables at Indian Garden Campground.
The Grand Canyon Association, which manages Grand Canyon National Park's fundraising efforts, passed along these photos of Troop 65 presenting the $4,500 check. In addition, a GCA donor offered to match the Scouts' funds, so a total of $9,000 went toward the project.
To learn more about the Scouts' hike, pick up our January issue, on newsstands now.
