'Tis the Season in Tooele County
'Tis the Season in Tooele County!
After a Holiday weekend where we were smothered with media stories of fights over toys in stores, or complaints of retailers moving Christmas shopping into Thanksgiving Day (which i won't blame them for as long as people continue to show up!), I thought I'd share a story of a local merchant that actually gets it.
It started a couple of years ago when the owner of our local Denney's restaurant, Chad Fulmer, heard about a growing number of needy folks in our community. He contacted Tooele County Relief Services and asked how he could help. Turns out many of these people simply needed nothing more than a hot Thanksgiving meal.
Right in Chad's wheelhouse!
Chad started collecting donations from like-minded people and businesses and got to work. He donated staff time and the kitchen at his own restaurant. Using lists from Relief Services and a merry band of volunteer delivery drivers, he started distributing meals. The program was obviously well received, and it's getting bigger every year!
This past Thursday, it was my pleasure to help deliver these meals for the second year in a row. This year, we prepared and delivered over 300 hot meals. How many volunteers did Chad get? Well, we delivered all of them in an hour, from Tooele to Stansbury Park to Grantsville! Local business people, educators, elected officials, and regular folks all coming together for a great cause.
Naturally, Chad deflects the credit for making it all work to members of his staff and volunteers, and there is certainly credit due there. However, his staff changes year to year, as do volunteers. There seems to be one constant: a local business owner that wants to make a difference in this community. He simply allows us to help, and for that I'm thankful!
So, as you battle for a great deal on that last flat screen, or knock over the kid to grab that last blue-ray movie, I hope you'll pause and remember what this season really means. There are a few people here in Tooele County that do. Like Chad Fulmer and his wonderful staff @ Denney's.
