Recipients of annual charity donations were recently invited to the October club meeting of the Red Rock 4-Wheelers to receive funds. The club doled out more than $26,000 in donations.

In September the club donated $10,000 to be divided among the families who lost their homes in the Cinema Court fire.

Standard annual donations totaling $9,000 were given to the following representatives: Moab Police Department Assistant Chief Brett Edge, Grand County Search & Rescue member Jim Webster, Grand County Sheriff’s Deputy Shan Hackwell, San Juan County Search & Rescue member Colton Brimhall and Moab Chamber of Commerce Director Lacy Shumway.

In the past other recipients have included the Red Devil swim and mountain bike teams, Grand Area Mentoring program, Canyonlands PRCA Rodeo Club, the Humane Society, and student trips.
