In the spirit of the holiday, Fremont Therapy Group and Rocky Mountain Sports & PT invite you to join them in helping organizations that help our communities.

We encourage community members who are able to join us in donating to your favorite non-profits.

The mission of Golden Hour Senior Center is to create a better everyday life for people 55 and older through interaction, access, referral, socialization, education, activity and nutrition. Due to the pandemic, GHSC was forced to drastically limit their typically robust activities for Seniors. This removed access to critical social interaction for our Seniors.

To combat Senior loneliness, the staff of GHSC calls patrons to visit, and prepares activity packets to help with the isolation. Typical dining room meals were switched to a successful curbside drive up process, in addition to home delivered meals. With hard work and creativity, The Golden Hour Senior Center has remained a critical service for our most vulnerable community members during this pandemic.

Jackie Grubb, Director of GHSC explains, “Our small kitchen staff of 5 prepares and packages up to 200 meals per day for both curbside pick up and home delivered meals. We have experienced a 10% increase in meal needs this year, and a decrease in our grant funding. This has made for challenging times, but the kitchen staff and office staff have been phenomenal. Everyday they work diligently to engage our Seniors and keep them nourished. I cannot say enough positive things about the GHSC staff.

Kiwanis is dedicated to serving children in Sweetwater County and they measure each of their projects based on the benefit to children. Superintendent McGovern mentioned that school kids get their school clothes in September and by March they have long worn out or outgrown their shoes. Kiwanis plans to host Shoes for Kids this year to help children of Sweetwater County secure footwear for the entire year.

Kiwanis also supports Raising Readers (books given to every child when they visit the pediatrician), Shop with a Cop ), and support for Boys and Girls Club, United Way and the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, and Juvenile Diabetes. Karla Leach, Board Member explains, “By serving the children of this community, we hope that we can bring a bit of sunshine to some very deserving kids and lighten the load for their parents. Because our primary fundraisers have been cancelled this year, donations are a tremendous help to continue to support the youth of our community.”
