- Home Edition
ABC's Emmy Award winning television show came to Utah to build a new home for a local Polynesian family. The 11 member Danny Pauni family moved to Utah from Tonga in 1991. In 2004, Danny died tragically, leaving his wife, Janet, to care for the large family. Janet runs a Tongan catering business out of her home, and the rest of the family struggled to help her make ends meet.
Kartchner Homes, a local home developer led the campaign to secure contractors, volunteers, and donations. WestHost was happy to play a small part in helping with the Web hosting needs for Kartchner and others to handle the large increase in traffic to their websites as a result of publicity during the home building event.
Common Ground Outdoor Adventures' provides life-enhancing outdoor recreational opportunities for youth and adults with disabilities. They provide adaptive equipment and support, which enable people with disabilities to participate in outdoor recreation alongside their peers. These experiences reduce stereotypes, raise awareness, and empower people to realize their full potential. Their trips are not only accessible physically but also financially.
WestHost has sponsored and consistently participates in their annual fund raiser, and will be helping with the redesign of their website, putting focus on making it more accessible to those with disabilities.
For the last several years WestHost has been involved with Sub for Santa, helping dozens of less fortunate kids during the Holiday Season.
Cache County Sub for Santa is a community-based program which seeks to promote and support the community's voluntary donations to individuals and families in need within Cache County during the Christmas season. The program strives to identify those in need and encourage and coordinate voluntary participation in providing assistance to them at Christmas. We always appreciate the opportunity to assist this organization.
WestHost recently donated to the Cache County Sheriff's Department for the purchase of a second K-9 unit. In appreciation, their current K-9, named Tino, was brought to WestHost for a live demonstration.
Tino is a 4 year old Belgian Malinois from Holland. His commands are in Dutch and he has been with the Logan City Police Department for three years serving in both the detection of narcotics and apprehension of suspects.
A 2 mile stretch of highway in Mendon, Utah has been the responsibility of WestHost for the past number of years.

WestHost has donated and participated in the March of Dimes walk in Logan, Utah. The March of Dimes is an organization dedicated to improving the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. We felt it was a good cause and something we enjoyed doing.

We're thankful for all organizations that assisted in relief efforts.
