For personal and professional reasons, we are very pleased to announce our newest client, The Utah 1033 Foundation. Created a couple of years ago by Park City, Utah residents Tore and Mona Steen, the Foundation provides immediate financial support in the amount of $25,000 to the families of Utah’s police officers killed in the line of duty. As a New Yorker still living in the city during September 11, this cause is especially significant to me. On my own, I made multiple trips in my Jeep Cherokee delivering food and first aid supplies to the law enforcement personnel working tirelessly in the Ground Zero area. I watched in awe as they risked their lives to search for survivors while grieving their coworkers who rushed into the burning towers to save innocent citizens. As a result, I have the utmost respect for the firefighters, police and other first responders who are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to protect us and keep us safe.
Our public relations contract with The Utah 1033 Foundation began September 1, and it was a day marked by tragedy. Draper Police Sgt. Derek Johnson was shot and killed in the line of duty, making him the first Utah police officer to be killed in 13 months. The Utah 1033 Foundation delivered a $25,000 check to the Johnson family to provide financial support for immediate needs like funeral expenses.
The Foundation plans to expand its services by providing scholarship funds to the children of our fallen heroes. They also plan to provide support to families of firefighters killed in the line of duty.
