OF THE HIGH PLAINS
Ann Crouch Original
The Crouch Foundation of Amarillo is excited to officially donate a 640-acre ranch bordering the Palo Duro Canyon and $500,000 to the Diabetes Foundation of the High Plains (DFHP).
These gifts fulfill the wishes of the late Ann Crouch who had a vision to help build a local diabetic camp for children across the Tri-State region.
Formed to carry on Ann’s dreams, the Crouch Foundation has been diligently working over the past several months with DFHP, the Texas Attorney General’s Office and the probate court to clear the way for this historic donation.
With the donation of Ann’s ranch, DFHP will be one step closer to building its own camp facilities to further support and promote Camp New Day, which is a diabetes camp currently held yearly at Ceta Glen.
The donation will allow the Diabetes Foundation to expand the camp experience while reaching more youth. It will be known as Camp New Day at Crouch Canyon Ranch.
Further enhancing the relationship between the two organizations, Dr. Melanie Thompson who serves on the Board of Directors for the Diabetes Foundation of the High Plains has been elected to serve concurrently on the Crouch Foundation Board of Directors.
