Elks Demonstrate Charity by Giving
Since the Shootings of the Haight family in Enoch, we have raised over $30,000 for additional mental health care for the first responders and for the members of the Enoch community. Because of the hard work of a coalition of mental health care providers, we have been able to pay for over 100 individual and group sessions to help Enoch recover from this tragedy. A huge partner in our efforts has been Cedar City Elks Lodge #1556 of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. Last Wednesday, they presented Dan Kidder (center), the executive director of the Friends of the Iron County Sheriff, with an additional check for $4,000 from the Utah State Elks benevolent fund, in addition to the $1,600 they donated from the local lodge. Without their help, manpower, use of their facilities for our initial fundraiser, and their steadfast commitment to charity, none of this would have been possible. We want to thank Cedar City Elks Lodge 1556 for their generous assistance in helping Iron County heal from this tragedy.
