Utahns keep up their relief efforts

SHARE Utahns keep up their relief efforts

Relief efforts continue for victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in New York and Washington.

The Layton police and fire departments are trying to raise $150,000 to buy a police car and ambulance for their counterparts in New York City.

So far, they've raised about a quarter of the money, Layton dispatcher Julie Higdon said. Donations can be made at any First National Bank location in Layton, Bountiful or Salt Lake City.

Anyone with questions about the fund-raiser can call Layton Police Capt. Jason Cook at 1-801-544-1241 or Assistant Fire Chief Scott Adams at 1-801-444-2657, Ext. 5.

The departments are also working to have the police car donated. If the car is donated, all the money raised would pay for the ambulance, which costs about $125,000.

Log Haven Restaurant in Salt Lake will donate profits from Monday through Nov. 30 to the New York State World Trade Center Relief Fund

Lone Star Steakhouse & Saloon will donate all of its daily proceeds on Oct. 11 to the American Red Cross. This includes Sullivan's Steakhouse and all of the company's outlets.

Representatives from the Veterans Administration Salt Lake City Health Care System, in partnership with the Homeless Veterans Fellowship, will plant two Veterans' Honor Hybrid Tea Roses during a ceremony on Tuesday, Oct. 2, at 10:30 a.m. at the Homeless Veterans Fellowship, 541 23rd St., Ogden.
