Anchorage, Alaska – May 28, 2014 – More than 120 Weidner Apartment Homes employees traveled to Camp Togowoods, a Girl Scouts of Alaska-owned camp property in Wasilla, to rebuild tent platforms, clean camp buildings, rake gardens and grounds, and perform general repairs to buildings and utilities to ready the camp for the 2014 Girl Scout summer camp season. The Weidner Cares event took place May 22.

Camp Togowoods is located on 400 beautiful acres along the shores of Three Mile Lake in Wasilla. It encompasses five ecosystems, including a wetlands boardwalk. Campers enjoy nature hikes, environmental education, swimming, canoeing or kayaking and a 35-foot climbing tower.
Weidner volunteers helped ready Camp Togowoods.
“We were amazed at the amount of work these dedicated Weidner volunteers were able to accomplish,” said Sue Perles, CEO of Girl Scouts of Alaska. “Girl Scouts builds girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. Summer camp is one way Girl Scouts of Alaska invests in Alaska’s girls, our future leaders. That Weidner chose GSAK to be the recipient of its inaugural outreach event in Alaska demonstrates the company’s commitment to providing girls with opportunities for leadership development in a safe and nurturing environment.”
