We believe in giving back.
2016 Autism Speaks – raised over $2500 for Autism Speaks and every dollar donated was matched by H&O. Blue puzzle piece pins were given to physicians in our community and our therapists to support the “Light it up Blue” campaign on April 2, 2017. Please join us in wearing blue on that day. Autism Speaks mission “is dedicated to promoting solutions, across the spectrum and throughout the lifespan, for the needs of individuals with autism and their families through advocacy and support; increasing understanding and acceptance of autism spectrum disorder; and advancing research into causes and better interventions for autism spectrum disorder and related conditions.”
We appreciate the support of our patients, employees, and families to make these fundraisers successful.

2013 Odyssey House Foundation — raised over $1700 for Odyssey House Foundation. This local non-profit, residential organization that assists parents with drug dependencies who are seeking rehabilitation. Funds collected during the fundraiser went towards recreation and outings for the children. They also helped with school supplies, clothes, holidays such as Christmas and other activities that the parents may do with their children.
2012 Angel Hands Foundation — raised $2,350 for a local nonprofit who aides families who have children born with rare genetic disorders. They help families purchase much needed medical equipment for their children. They also set up monthly events that the kids may otherwise be unable to attend.
2011 Now I Can — raised $1800 for the Now I Can foundation. This a non-profit physical therapy organization designed to help children with disabilities reach their full potential and greatest independence.
2010 Families Helping Families (FHF) Mexico — We raised $3000 toward building a home in Puerto Penasco, Mexico. The inability to get a loan for a home prohibits most families in Mexico from ever owning their own home. FHF qualifying families also participate in building other homes. These families then repay a portion of the cost of their construction. This creates a perpetual building fund for FHF. 98% of all donations go directly to programs and services.
2009 Sunflower Orphanage Peru — We raised over $3000 to fund construction of a fresh water well for this orphanage. Steve Crandall and his family have made a number of service trips to the Sunflower Orphanage. They have seen firsthand the lack of protein, fresh fruit and water. Not long after our fundraiser we received a photo of the children drinking water rushing from their new fresh water well.
2008 Utah Food Bank — Teams of staff members competed to raise the most money and food. Patients and staff donated 5 barrels of food and $796 in cash. This was the equivalent of 2,565 meals.
2007 Give a Kid a Backpack — our goal was to provide impoverished children in Venezuela with backpacks and necessary school supplies. For every dollar we raised Give a Kid a Backpack Foundation matched our dollar. They distributed backpacks to children in Venezuela.
2006 Operation Give — Toys to Iraq Children – Paul Holton, a member of Utah Army National Guard, saw a need to bring hope and a new beginning to the children of this war torn country. He sent school supplies, hygiene items, clothing, etc. to children all over Iraq. We gathered supplies and filled 300 shoe boxes with these needed items.
