Community outreach is a big part of what we do at Willow Creek Pet Center. It is a chance for us to be involved in the community by helping support many organizations and their fundraising efforts. Every year, Willow Creek Pet Center donates many gift certificates and baskets of dog treats, toys and other items to help raise money for organizations all over Utah.
University of Utah Health Care’s Burn Center provides the most comprehensive care for burn patients in the Intermountain West. Burn patients suffer severe physical injuries, but also go through an emotional and spiritual journey as they recover. Treatment can be difficult and long and there is an extensive outpatient care unit as well.
The University of Utah Burn Center treats children and adults with thermal, chemical and burns. Also frostbite cases, soft tissue diseases and open wounds requiring special care. The Center also provides education in order to eliminate fire deaths and injuries. The Center’s Educational programs were developed to address the medical, social and financial consequences of injury and disability.
The fundraiser supports a 6 day river rafting trip for adolescent burn survivors. The camp helps burn survivors reintegrate into society.
