President James E. Faust, second counselor in the First Presidency, planned
to appear today at a fundraiser, helping to issue a $100,000 challenge grant
to benefit a join campaign by Utah Legal Services, the Disability Law Center
and the Legal Aid Society of Salt Lake. If the drive raises $300,000, the
challenge grant will be made.
The compaign is targeting the 5,200 attorneys in Utah, seeking to replace
funding lost due to federal budget cuts. The three organizations had to turn
away over 8,000 people with legal needs.
