Trooper Island News Release

Citigroup Foundation Donates To Trooper Island Camp

Date of News Release: 01/05/2006

(Albany, KY) - On Wednesday, January 4, 2006 managers of Citi-Financial Bank representing offices in London, Hazard, Corbin, Harlan, and Somerset, along with District Representative Judy Trimble presented Trooper Island Camp Director, Trooper Craig Sutton and Hazard Post Commander Captain Jeff Caudill a check for $21,000.00 to benefit Trooper Island Camp.

To date the Citigroup Foundation has given over $125,000 to Trooper Island. Trooper Island was created in 1965 by the Kentucky State Police as a boys camp on Dale Hollow Lake near the Clinton-Cumberland County line to help those who may not have otherwise had a chance to attend a summer camp. Trooper Island, now a co-ed camp, serves approximately 700 boys and girls ages 10 to 12, selected from across the commonwealth by Troopers to attend a week long camp at no charge during the summer months.

In addition to the regular camping schedule Trooper Island conducts three (3) special camps for some of Kentucky's special needs youth. These camps include Camp PKU (phenylketonuria), Camp BraveHearts (Heart Complications) and a camp for the Hispanic.

Trooper Island is a non-profit charitable corporation, operating solely from donation from private individuals, Corporations, Civic and Business groups, along with charitable activities held by Kentucky State Police posts across the state. Some of activities in which funds have been raised for Trooper Island are golf scrambles, motorcycle runs, fishing tournaments and our yearly statewide raffle.

Anyone that would like to make a donation can send a contribution directly to Trooper Island at Post Office Box 473, Albany, Kentucky 42602 or by contacting your local Public Affairs Officer at any of the Kentucky State Police Posts across the state. Further information on Trooper Island can be found at www.kentuckystatepolice.org/text/trooperisle.htm.
