Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland is pleased to accept a generous donation from Cargill to support the ever-growing Outdoor Programming offered to Kansas Girl Scouts.

Last Friday morning, Cargill presented a $10,000 check to Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland that will fund supplies as well as staff and volunteer certifications and training for Girl Scout Outdoor Programming. This donation will further enhance Girl Scout’s many outdoor programs such as the High Adventure course that includes a 55-foot climbing tower, rappelling wall and zip-line. The grant provides girls across Kansas the opportunity to continue exploring outdoor adventures in a safe and exciting environment through Girl Scouts.

“We are proud to support great organizations in our community, like the Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland, that help advance environmental stewardship through programs that help connect young individuals to the outdoors,” said Nathan Hoffman, president of the Wichita Cargill Cares Council.

The donation was made possible through Cargill Cares, an employee-led council that provides support to local organizations and initiatives that align with its focus areas of nutrition, food security and sustainability.

Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland, a nonprofit serving 80 Kansas counties, is grateful for Cargill’s support of girls across the state who are making a difference and leading the way as G.I.R.L.s (Go-getters, Innovators, Risk-takers and Leaders) in their communities.
