IMG_8190By Mike Varanakis, Youth Services Public Information Officer

Earlier today, Salt Lake County Deputy Mayor Lori Bays, announced the annual Youth Services Angel Giving Tree campaign at the Salt Lake County Government Center.

IMG_8165The effort is in partnership with Shelterkids, a local non-profit providing items to abused, neglected and at-risk youth served by Salt Lake County Youth Services. Joining the event was Erik Churcher who has directly benefited from the programs at Youth Services. He shared comments about his personal journey and how the support from Youth Services programs helped to shape his future.

IMG_8175The Angel Giving Trees display handcrafted ornaments donated by volunteers from the community and will be available inside the Salt Lake County Government Center North building atrium.

Salt Lake County employees and the community are encouraged to select an ornament that represents a special and needed gift for youth. Donations are gladly accepted at the Salt Lake County Mayor’s office by December 18th and will be distributed to youth in need for the holidays.

For more information about the Angel Giving Tree campaign and how you can participate, please call Mike at 385-468-4506 or email mvaranakis@slco.org.
