Special to the Tribune
Buffalo Wild Wings of Prescott Valley recently donated $369 to the West Yavapai Guidance Clinic Foundation specifically to cover costs for printing suicide awareness brochures and furthering efforts to educate local adults regarding suicide prevention. The employees at Buffalo Wild Wings raised the money after the loss of friends to suicide.
One way to help prevent suicide is for individuals to seek help before life challenges rise to the level of a crisis.
In addition to and in combination with the suicide education outreach efforts, West Yavapai Guidance Clinic Foundation is raising money for a new initiative to support families and individuals who have no insurance coverage, yet are in need of brief, solution-focused counseling. This has been identified as a critical need within the community, whether it is for families dealing with the grief from a family member's death, or a couple unable to manage financial stress in a healthy way.
Significant funding for this pilot project has been provided by the Freeport McMoRan Copper and Gold Foundation, Margaret T. Morris Foundation, J.W. Kieckhefer Foundation, and the Harold James Family Trust.
Buffalo Wild Wings of Prescott Valley is continuing its support of these causes by dedicating 10 percent of sales from 4 p.m. to close on Friday, Dec. 28, to the West Yavapai Guidance Clinic Foundation.
Donations also can be made directly to the Foundation at www.wygc.org/give. In addition, if you are affiliated with an organization that would like to have a free presentation on suicide awareness and prevention contact, Laura Norman at 583-6411.
