SALT LAKE CITY — At a private luncheon at the Alta Club in downtown Salt Lake City May 1, Zions Bank President and CEO A. Scott Anderson presented a check for $50,000 to Bishop John C. Wester of the Catholic Diocese of Salt Lake City and Catholic Community Services of Utah (CCS) Executive Director Maggie St. Claire.

The donation will support CCS’ renovation of a new headquarters facility that will house treatment services, men and women’s residential substance abuse programs, refugee resettlement and immigration, and administration offices.

In addition, Anderson announced he had commissioned local artist Ruby Chacon to paint a mural in the new CCS building. He also presented Bishop Wester with a painting of the Cathedral of the Madeleine by Utah artist Larry Wade.

"We commend Catholic Community Services for its stewardship in providing resources and support for the people of Salt Lake City," said Anderson. "Zions Bank is proud to make this donation toward this new facility that will enable the organization to continue its legacy of quality service to members of our community."

In December of 2005 Intermountain Healthcare generously donated its clinic property at 745 East 300 South to CCS. Since January 2006, CCS has been working on a $3,000,000 capital campaign to fund the renovation of the building into a campus-style facility. The grounds will include two playgrounds for the children of the women residents. The living quarters are designed for comfort as well as function. The location is convenient to TRAX and bus lines, which will help CCS’ off-site clients to access the services.
