    Sara Melnicoff of Moab Solutions said the non-profit received $11,180 in donations during its annual month-long fundraising drive in front of City Market.

    “Moab Solutions is honored by the trust placed in them by the community and promises that all aid given is of the utmost necessity,” said Melnicoff in an email. “The group is touched by the generous spirit of the community.”

    More than 60 volunteers, most with Larson & Company, the Moab Valley Multicultural Center, and Seekhaven Family Crisis and Resource Center manned the table in front of the supermarket from the day after Thanksgiving until Christmas Eve.

    The funds, along with private donations and anticipated grants, “should help us address emergency needs within the community for all of 2020,” said Melnicoff. Moab Solutions administers the needs fund, which is used to help a wide range of people during times of need.
