The presents are opened, the leftovers are disappearing, and work has begun on our 2018 resolutions. 2017 was a year of political shockwaves, sports-win highs, and hurricane lows. However, we’re not quite ready to wave the year goodbye without one last appeal to support those in our community who need our help. We all know the tax benefits of contributing to charity organizations, and there are only a few days left to make the most of this for 2017. But, more importantly, we’d like to invite you to reflect on how good it feels to know you’ve helped a neighbor in need, feed a homeless pet, or contribute to a key community service.
We’ve compiled a short list of our favorite nonprofits that directly benefit Park City. We at Chin-MacQuoid-Fleming-Harris support all of these and many others. For a complete directory of 501c3 organizations in our area compiled by Park City Community Foundation, click here.
