The Inaugural Challenge To Begin At Washington Elementary School On October 2nd
Online PR News – 03-October-2012 – Salt Lake City, Utah – BOUNTIFUL, UT. – October 2, 2012 – Rocky Mountain Care Foundation 501(c)(3) announced today their “Good Deeds Challenge” will kick off at Washington Elementary School on October 2nd and will be completed by November 15th. The goal of the program is to bring the love of community service to elementary age children.
“We are excited for the kick off of the first Good Deeds Challenge,” said Dede Fluette, Executive Director of Rocky Mountain Care Foundation. “We strongly believe in serving the community here at our Foundation and the hope is to spread this message to children in the community.”
In the “Good Deeds Challenge”, each classroom within a school will come up with their own service project for their community. It can be anything – raking leaves for a neighbor living with a disability, making cards to send to soldiers serving our country, holding a food drive, or throwing a fundraiser – the only limit is the imagination of the students! Rocky Mountain Care Foundation has partnered with Grounds for Coffee on Historic 25th Street and Bountiful’s Pizza Pie Cafe to sponsor the Inaugural challenge and recognize the students for their Good Deeds (http://rockymountaincarefoundation.org/good-deeds/).
Rocky Mountain Care Foundation began its DUO (Do Unto Others) program in August. Through the “DUO” program, the Foundation utilizes the work of volunteers to assist low-income homeowners who are seniors or those living with disabilities in Davis County with critical but minor home repairs and seasonal yard maintenance. In a formal partnership with Americorps VISTA, the Foundation is able to bring these services to the community. It is the goal of “DUO” to help this vulnerable population remain in their homes and be independent for as long as possible.
In addition to the new “Duo” program, Rocky Mountain Care Foundation's charitable healthcare initiative covers the cost of essential healthcare (services, equipment, pharmaceuticals, Co-pays, etc.) for low-income individuals without sufficient financial or insurance resources. The Rocky Mountain Care Foundation also places 10% of all fundraising proceeds into a scholarship fund to assist individuals with educational costs in the medical fields.
