Correctional Facility contributes $1,000 to BSA

PENDLETON, Ind. — Boy Scout Troop 240 was the latest recipient of a charitable contribution made by the Correctional Industrial Facility in Pendleton.

A donation of $1,000 that was raised through the facility’s Aramark Community fund was given to the troop.

“The success of the facility’s Fresh Favorite food sales enables us to make these charitable donations, which is very rewarding,” said Wendy Knight, superintendent of the Correctional Industrial Facility.

Boy Scout Troop 240 has 39 members and celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. Troop 240 provided over 850 hours of community service in 2012. They also promoted three scouts to the rank of Eagle Scout. Eagle Scouts have to complete a minimum of 357 requirements for the promotion. Troop 240 is always looking for more donations for underprivileged Boy Scouts. Anyone interested in donating to the Scout Assistance Fund can contact Bethany Christian Church in Anderson.  

The check was accepted on behalf of Troop 240 by Steve Tuttle, committee chairman.
