For the fourth consecutive year, Taco John’s and Jonah Bank of Wyoming are joining forces to fight the rising incidences of suicide.

During the entire month of May, participating Taco John’s and Jonah Bank locations will encourage customers to contribute to their campaign to support the suicide prevention efforts of local nonprofit groups, such as Grace For 2 Brothers, and similar organizations across Colorado and Wyoming. All of the money raised will be donated to these local organizations. In Fremont County, the money raised will go to Fremont County Suicide Prevention.

Stop by Taco John’s in Riverton and when you pay, they will ask you if you want to donate. So far, a little over $1000 has been raised. The goal is set at $3000.

Stop in at Taco John’s and let’s meet our goal! We can do it!

Fremont County has the second-highest rate of suicide in the state of Wyoming. Even though County suicide deaths in 2018 reached the lowest number in 18 years, being aware of warning signs is an important step in preventing suicide.

10 Cast’s Jerrad Anderson spoke with Becky Parker, MS, LPC, Clinical Director of Fremont Counseling this morning to learn more about Fremont County Suicide Prevention, how they help the community, and the Taco John’s fundraising. Click here to listen to the County 10 Podcast.
