Tooele County Democrats; Putting People First

The goal of the Tooele County Democrats’ Activities Committee this year is to go into our local community and demonstrate our motto “Putting People First” in action.

In a community where needs are plentiful and funds are few, we must consider what we as Tooele Democrats have to offer and where our services can be used the most. Perhaps our greatest resource is an incredible group of individuals whom love their community and are ready and willing to make it an even better place to live.

On Saturday April 16th, 2011 some of those individuals joined with local salons (Urban Endz, A Cut Above, La Chic Image, Waves, Sheer Pleasure, and Sprinkle of Style) and the Bikers Against Child Abuse to raise money for the Children’s Justice Center of Tooele. Together, we sponsored a hair Cut-A-Thon and were able to collect over $1000 for this wonderful organization. The Tooele Democrats supplied some entertainment and free soda pop for those participating in the event. We received multiple comments from people passing by that were excited to see that, despite our recent losses, we have not disappeared.

On Saturday April 30th, 2011 we will be co-sponsoring the Tooele County 5K Run Against Violence. http://www.runagainstviolence.blogspot.com/. Local Democrats are donating water and some soda pop for this event. We have also been asked to find 14 volunteers to run the registration, water stations, and other functions during this event. All net proceeds will benefit local victims and families of domestic violence and sexual assault. We still need more volunteers to fill this need. You, the Tooele Democrats are the greatest resource we have to offer this community! There will be a meeting April 26th at 6PM at Elton Park for all volunteers to receive their assignments. If you are willing and able to represent us at this event please call Hazel at 435-843-2423 or email hazel.reed@tooeledemocrats.org.

Also, please do the same if you find an opportunity for the Tooele Democrats to “Put People First” and show the citizens of Tooele County that we are still a powerful force for good and that we are not in hiding!
