Helping others has always been very important to the Harmons family and to everyone who works at Harmons. As a result of our passion and commitment, we've raised upwards of two million dollars for local charities and non-profit organizations. Because we nearly always involve our customers and other community groups, we're able to give much more than we could alone.
Throughout the year Harmons gives monetary and in-kind donations to a number of non-profit organizations within our communities that many people may never hear about. What people do hear about more often are the promotions and events that involve our amazing customers and vendor communities. Not only do these annual events raise funds for great organizations, but they are always a fun and fulfilling time for Harmons associates and customers.
At Harmons, we love to give donations to deserving groups and organizations. Keep in mind, though, that we're on a budget just like everyone else. We wish we could say yes to everyone. Please visit the Business Center at your local Harmons for more information on how to submit a written request. Donation requests are handled on a store by store basis. Donation inquiries will not be taken by phone at stores or the Support Office.
Although we would like to say yes to everyone, we are unable to make donations to:
If you remember the days of the delicious and fun Lions Club breakfasts, you'll enjoy the new fundraising event even more. Join us on August 20, 2011 for the 2nd Annual Walk With the Blind. Money raised will go the Utah Lions Club Foundation. It donates funds to sight-preservation projects, along with youth and community-development programs such as the Utah Lions Eye Bank at the John Moran Eye Center, the Utah Foundation for the Blind and the Utah Coalition for Organ, Eye and Tissue Donation. The Utah Lions Eye Bank provides the gift of sight to nearly 400 Utahns each year. You can find out more information about the Utah Lions Club and register for the event at www.walkwiththeblind.org. But what about the traditional breakfast? Don't worry, the event includes a pancake breakfast.
