Celebrate the Season of Giving

Help families around Utah celebrate the holidays. 

November is the month of giving. BHHS Utah feels strongly that the holidays are an especially important time for community giving. We urge you to use this season to participate in two local drives that assist our underserved neighbors.

Support the 13th Annual Park City Turkey Drive.

One in seven people in Utah go to bed hungry. The Turkey Drive is committed to ensuring these individuals are able to celebrate Thanksgiving. Every year the need to help families increases. To date, the Park City Turkey Drive has provided turkey dinner to over 125,000 people and has donated 10,000 pounds of non-perishable food to our local pantry.

This year's goal is 2,000 turkeys, which will provide dinner to 12,000 people. This event is sponsored in part by the Park City Board of Realtors Philanthropic Foundation. Come see us and contribute a turkey at the Market Park City on November 20-21 from 10am-5pm.

Support "Shop with a Cop"

Sometimes Santa needs a little help from those of us who care about the children in our community. That is why the local Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) Lodge continues to sponsor the Shop With a Cop program each December. It is a way for us to help make the holidays a little brighter for children in need. The success of the program has always been dependent on the good will and participation of local citizens and businesses, and we need financial donations to make this event possible. The Park City FOP Lodge is a non-profit organization and 100% of your donation will go to the kids.

On Saturday, December 6th 2014, the Shop With a Cop program will match area children with local law enforcement officers for a holiday breakfast at the Best Western Landmark Inn at Kimball Junction. The Officers and children will then drive with lights and sirens from the hotel through the area to Wal-Mart, where each child and officer will shop for holiday gifts. The smiles on the children's faces are all the thanks that anyone might need!

We hope that you will help us with this effort by making a monetary donation to the FOP and the Shop With a Cop program. Checks should be made out to FOP Park City Lodge #3 and sent to Park City Lodge #3, PO Box 681317, Park City, UT 84068.
