(Hudson NY)

Girl Scouts, Hudson Valley Council recently received a grant of $2,000 from the Hudson River Bank & Trust Co. Foundation to support the Rainbow and Campership Fund programs.

The Rainbow Fund provides financial assistance to girls for annual GSUSA membership dues, membership pins and sashes/Daisy tunics.  The Campership fund provides financial assistance to girls who could otherwise not afford to attend a Girl Scout camp.

“We are very excited to be able to provide financial assistance to our girls thanks to the support of the Hudson River Bank & Trust Company Foundation.  Now more girls than ever will be able to become Girl Scouts, proudly wear a uniform and attend camp,” said Louis McColgin, executive director/CEO, girl Scouts, Hudson Valley Council.

“The Girl Scouts, Hudson Valley Council has long been an important asset to our community.  The positive impact the council has on the lives of our daughters is incredibly vital and Hudson River Bank & Trust Co. Foundation is proud to assist in reaching the goals set by the Girl Scouts,” said Carl Florio, board member of Hudson River Bank & Trust Co. Foundation.

More than 400 girls benefited from the Rainbow fund last year.  More than 1,600 girls attended Camp Little Notch and Camp Is-Sho-Da last summer and 100 of those girls received financial aid from the Campership Fund last year.

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.  The Girl Scouts, Hudson Valley Council serves approximately 7,000 girls and more than 2,100 adults in Albany, Rensselaer, Columbia, Greene and southern Saratoga counties.

The Hudson River Bank & Trust Co. Foundation was established in 1998 to provide financial support to non-profit organizations.  The foundation continues its charitable giving with an emphasis on education, youth development, arts and culture, historic preservation, health care, human services and community development.
