HeritageWest Credit Union provides everyday essentials to Tooele families

It’s hard to imagine how we would survive without our everyday living essentials.

In partnership with Tooele County Relief Services, HeritageWest Credit Union hosted its second annual supply drive, collecting high priority necessities and supplies to Tooele families in need. Tooele County Relief Services assists local churches and agencies supporting individuals and families in crisis due to lack of food and shelter.

During the month-long drive, the credit union collected numerous boxes of cleaning supplies, paper products, blankets, bed linens and children’s books. The credit union proudly donated these supplies to the Tooele County Relief Services for distribution.

Brooke Bevan, head of HeritageWest’s volunteer team, said the credit union decided to host this collection drive to ensure that Tooele County Relief Services are able to continue supporting families in need.

“Our employees and members really stepped forward to lend a helping hand to help families in our community,” she said.

Quarterly, HeritageWest employees perform a service project assisting Tooele County Relief Services based on the community’s current needs. Last October, employees donated hygiene kits and non-perishable lunches, which were of high importance at the time. The credit union looks forward to assisting Tooele County Relief Services with collection drives in the future.
