Since this program was first introduced in 2008, a wide range of organizations have received the award. Last year’s winners represented a variety of causes including free meals for children, physical activity programs, crisis support, and free medical services.
Here’s a look at a few of our past winners:
The award funds were used to launch their “Men’s Health Day” that offers a day of health education, screenings, community resources, and basic vision and dental services to men who are experiencing homelessness.
Holding Out Help
They assist those from polygamous backgrounds with resources to meet their physical, emotional, and educational needs. The award funds were used for counseling fees to help those in need.
Lone Peak Fire District
They provide fire, rescue, and emergency medical services to the cities of Alpine and Highland. The award funds were used to build trauma kits for potential mass casualty incidents in schools.
Murray School District Mentoring Program
They empower youth to feel supported by allowing them to express themselves and feel comfortable with real-life difficulties. The funds were used for food, clothing, and activities the youth want to participate in but cannot afford.
They are committed to developing program, products, and software that increase access to oral health care for students and children. The funds were used to provide dental care to 50 students in need.
