The Papoose Club granted funds to these three outstanding organizations in January:
The St. Thomas Playhouse is a theater ministry of St. Thomas Episcopal Church, serving children, youth and adults in the Wood River Valley. The Children’s Theater Tour is only possible through individual contributions and the funds made possible by the Papoose Club over the past several years. The goal of Children’s Theater Tour is to inspire the children of the Wood River Valley and the surrounding areas. The Papoose Club sponsorship of this project serves approximately 3,000 youth.
The Blaine County Community Drug Coalition’s Idaho Drug Free Youth Local Chapter provides high school and middle school students with healthy, active alternatives to substance use within the community. They are involved in weekly Crossfit training program that not only builds physical strength through high intensity, constantly varied functional movements, but mental strength as well through building self-esteem, healthy connections with their peers and adults, and weekly mindfulness.
The Wood River High School Model United Nations Club allows high school students to engage in an academic simulation of the United Nations. The students play the role of delegates from different countries and attempt to solve real world issues using the policies and perspectives of their assigned country. WRHS MUN will be traveling to the Berkeley Model United Nations Conference, the largest UN conference in the country. The Papoose Club donation will help pay to for the cost of the conference, airfare, hotel rooms, conference fees and adviser fees.
