Glasgow Wal-Mart Donates to Trooper Island Camp
Date of News Release: 11/21/2008
(Glasgow, KY) --The Kentucky State Police recently received a generous donation of $1,000.00 from the Glasgow Wal-Mart for Trooper Island Camp. The donation will help campers from the Glasgow-Barren County area attend the summer camp which is absolutely free to boys and girls ages 10 to 12.
Trooper Island Camp was created on Dale Hollow Lake in 1965 by the Kentucky State Police, to provide a free summer camp to kids who's financial situation makes it to where they cannot attend another summer camp.
Trooper Island campers spend a week of fishing, swimming, boating, conoeing and many more activities, while being in a safe environment and interacting with Troopers from their area.
The Kentucky State Police is the only State Police agency in the nation to provide a summer camp for kids and realize that it would not be possible if not for supporters like Wal-Mart.
