April is Child Abuse Awareness Month so every April, Sizzler teams up with local law enforcement and the Children’s Justice Center to hold our annual Cops for kid’s event to raise funds and show support for child victims. With the help of Sizzler and local law enforcement, this one day event each year brings the community together for good food and great service all to benefit the Children’s Justice Center. Local law enforcement show their support by volunteering their time to serve dinner to customers and at the end of the evening all tips raised by the officers are donated to the Children’s Justice Center to benefit child victims of crime.
The Children’s Justice Center is a child-friendly facility where law enforcement, child protection, prosecution, mental health, medical & victim advocacy professionals work together to investigate abuse, help children heal from abuse, and hold offenders accountable. This year Sizzler partnered with both the Salt Lake County and Utah County Children’s Justice Center and had seven Salt Lake Valley cities participate.
Thanks to the efforts of our local law enforcement and the support of the community, the event was a success once again. This year we matched last year’s amount and raised a total of $17,502.73 for the Children’s Justice Centers.
