Sadie Mecham– She’s my sister and a nurse at Lone Peak Hospital. She has been amazing and worked so hard during this pandemic!

Local Businesses and Community Helpers

Alice Orton– My wife started her business, Geo Logic, this last January. When the Covid19 hit, she shifted focus, trying to get people to prepare for the next earthquake by promoting the Great American Shakeout which is scheduled for April 16th, even though there is no opportunity for income for her business.

Apple Family Assisted Living facilities in Davis and Weber Counties- Every department pooled resources, worked extra hours and days, and volunteered to give up their own comforts in order to keep residents cared for and safe. Everyone from entry-level to management has been helping each other across departments for the sake of devotion to the residents.

Craig and Michelle Labrum– Craig and Michelle, owners of the Roosevelt Arby’s, are providing individuals on the frontline of the Coronavirus pandemic free meals. Every Wednesday, they have been highlighting a different group of workers – healthcare, first-responders, teachers, etc. to feed for free. They will continue to support their local heroes every Wednesday until they are no longer financially able.
