Harmons donates funds
BOUNTIFUL -- Harmons and its customers recently donated $146,691 to Special Olympics Utah at a breakfast earlier this month.
The donations come from Harmons stores, including those located in Davis County. This is a 23 percent increase over the 2006 donation. The funds raised will support athletic events and educational programs for athletes with intellectual disabilities. "With the community's help Harmons has donated more than $758,380 to Special Olympics Utah since 1996," said Bob Harmon vice president of marketing. "We're proud to be one of their biggest contributors each year. This is a great organization that brings happiness to so many Utah families." Harmons, now in its 75th year serving Utah, is one of the few remaining local, family-owned and operated grocery chains in Utah.
