Event to aid veterans
Did you know that we lose 22 veterans every day nationwide to suicide? We must reduce these numbers even if it is by one.
Come support us on Feb. 7 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Spanish Fork Fairgrounds in the third annual Music From the Heart Veterans helping Veterans event. There will be music, food, vendors and information from support groups ranging from Veterans Affairs in Salt Lake City to suicide prevention groups. Through funds raised from last year’s event, we have helped over 600 veterans and their families through fishing trips, hiking, women’s veterans retreats and a three-day camp for children who have lost a parent in combat.
We cannot do it without you no matter what the donation is. Utah Elks and many others groups want to support our veterans. Remember, we did not lose then when they were deployed and we do not want to lose them when they come home. For more information about donations or support, contact Robert D. Pagnani, Utah Elks Veterans Chairman, at 435-433-6938 or email@example.com.
The public is invited to an event on Feb. 7 that will raise money for struggling veterans.
