Honoring a K9 Hero in Our Community

The motorcade was a way for the community to honor Maya as well, and it ended with a moving show of support at Jordan School District’s auxiliary services building following the funeral for Maya.

Maya is described as a loving dog who loved police work.

Thank you, Maya, for your service to our community. Our hearts are with West Jordan Police as they mourn this tragic loss.

The bedding sets will be distributed to refugee and other families in need, along with 200 brand new beds as part of the Foundation’s “Bed ‘R Homes for Kids” campaign, which is changing lives for the better.

Thanks to everyone involved in this project helping students have a better night’s sleep so they can do better in school during the day.
