These grants are based upon our community interaction and the percentage of members who own Everence financial products. We used the grant funds for The Lord’s Cupboard Food Bank and Davis County Crosslines. This is the last year of service by Keith & Gail Amstutz as MMA/Everence Advocates. Our thanks for their 39 years of service in this work and service.
