Rocky Mountain Raceways June 2013 flicker
Start your engines race fans!  Do you want to have a fun night out and help a great cause at the same time?  AARP is proud to fuel and support the Utah Food Bank in its race to end hunger on Saturday, June 27 for its 19th birthday bash.  Just bring five cans of food to the Raceways and you'll get free admission!
Nearly 30,000,000 meals per year are delivered to Utahns in need around the state because of donations to the Utah Food Bank.
AARP Utah is a strong supporter of the Utah Food Bank (UFB), with several volunteers who deliver food boxes on a regular basis and a monthly staff service project. So when we donated $8000 to the UFB, our Advocacy Director, Danny Harris, had the idea to challenge our Utah members to match it. We sent letters to each member in the state while the UFB promoted the match challenge on their website, online ads, and through social media. We thought that bringing in an extra $20,000 would exceed any reasonable expectations, so were thrilled that AARP Utah members contributed over $38,000 in checks and online donations. Because the UFB can translate each dollar donated into eight dollars of goods and services, AARP Utah’s total contribution has a value of $373,448! Both the UFB and we were amazed by the enormous generosity of our members in Utah.
