NORTH SALT LAKE — Local resident Kelly Matthews, Ph.D, was recently recognized for his volunteer work with Intermountain Healthcare.
Matthews, along with one other person, was selected out of 450 trustees to receive the 2011 William N. Jones Trustee of Excellence award. The award is meant to honor trustees who have been especially effective in helping Intermountain achieve its mission. Trustees serve without pay and help oversee Intermountain policies, goals and expectations for management.
Matthews has served on the governing board of Intermountain Homecare, (a home health and medical equipment provider), for 10 years, and as the chairman for three years.
During his time there, he helped increase the use of quality measurement and improvement techniques and focus the board in Intermountain’s mission.
Store helps military families
BOUNTIFUL — Dollar Tree stores nationwide are providing school supplies to children of military families with Operation Homefront’s Back-to-School Brigade through July 25.
Jim Knotts, President and CEO of Operation Homefront, urges residents to donate school supplies at the nearest Dollar Tree store.
“Military families, especially those in the lower and mid-grade ranks, can see a real money crunch at back-to-school time,” Knotts said in a statement from the company.
Those interested in contributing to the project are welcome. Accepted donations include spiral notebooks, pens, pencils, markers, crayons, notebook paper, rulers, colored pencils, calculators and erasers.
Donations will be packed in backpacks and delivered to the houses of military families in need come August.
If you would like to donate, please visit you local Dollar Tree store.
