The Granite Education Foundation honored The Salvation Army Salt Lake Corps on November 9, 2017 for providing assistance to needy families during the holiday season.

The education foundation annually recognizes Utah organizations that have made a difference in the lives of their students and the community.

“The Salvation Army understands that families are struggling and through their outreach, more than 400 families, out of 1,700 families the Salt Lake Corps serves, come from the Granite School District,” said Brent Severe, CEO of the Granite Education Foundation. “During the holiday season, when you generously put money into a Salvation Army kettle, expect change to result from it.”

Major Troy Trimmer and Captain Anie Trimmer accepted the award on behalf of the Salt Lake Corps and their dedicated staff, who regularly meet human needs and are realizing great change in their community.

The Granite Education Foundation (GEF) in Salt Lake City, Utah, provides access to resources that improve educational outcomes for over 68,000 students in the Granite School District. Business and community partners foster program development and donate resources that impact student learning and assist educators in our public schools.
