- Gift Supports Home Front Needs of Families with Deployed Service Members
DRAPER, Utah, Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- TriWest Healthcare Alliance will present $20,000 to the Utah National Guard Charitable Trust, to help support the needs of the more than 6,500 Utah Service members and their families.
TriWest representatives Alice Demarais, market vice president for the mountain region, and Tom Eurek, service area director in Utah, will present the check to Brig. Gen. Scott Harrison of the Utah Air National Guard, at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 11 at the Utah National Guard Headquarters, 12953 S. Minuteman Drive in Draper.
"As members of civilian communities, National Guard families don't always have convenient access to the support available at military bases like Hill Air Force Base," said TriWest President and CEO David J. McIntyre, Jr. "TriWest made the contribution with the hope that we can help to bridge that gap for Utah's Guard families."
Since 2001, nearly 80 percent of Utah's National Guard has been mobilized for active duty. Most recently, the 142nd Military Intelligence Battalion were notified that they will be deployed to Afghanistan in spring 2008.
"TriWest continues to be a steady partner that recognizes the realities of military service and its impact on our families," Brig. Gen. Harrison said. "We are grateful to TriWest for this contribution, which can help make life easier to bear for Guard members and their families."
TriWest's contribution is part of its "Giving to the Guard" campaign, in which the company is providing support to the National Guard throughout its 21-state west region.
