The second annual <a href=”http://loveutgiveut.razoo.com/giving_events/utah14/home” target=”_blank”>Love Utah Give Utah</a> event has brought out many donors to local non-profit organizations and schools during the statewide 24-hour day of giving.
Last year more than 6500 people from across the state raised $800,000 in just one day and those with local non-profits are hoping to equal or beat that record.
On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Thursday, Storee Powell of the Utah Assistive Technology Foundation said the event is serving as more than just a fundraiser.
“It’s a great way for us, too, to get some public awareness out about what we do,” Powell said. “Sometimes I think the non-profits work a lot. They are hard working people who aren’t always out in the forefront.
“A lot of times it’s behind the scenes work that makes our community a great place to live.”
