ST. GEORGE – The Community Soup Kitchen, a division of Switchpoint Community Resource Center, received $28,000 from a charity golf tournament Monday. The soup kitchen’s needs are many and there are plenty of ways people can help through donations and volunteering.

The annual charity golf event was sponsored by the Sand Hollow Resort and has raised over $76,000 for charity since it started four years ago.

“We are always happy to provide our award-winning championship course as the breathtaking setting for this worthwhile event,” said Adam Jasperson, general manager of Sand Hollow Resort Operations.

The Sand Hollow Resort is located east of the Sand Hollow reservoir in Hurricane.

Throughout the year, resort employees volunteer their time to help prepare and serve meals at the soup kitchen.

The Community Soup Kitchen is a nonprofit organization that serves the needy in Washington County by easing the burden of hunger for the working poor, students, elderly and the homeless.

The soup kitchen is located at the Grace Episcopal Church, 1072 E. 900 South in St. George, and serves a meal Monday through Friday from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m.

In addition to preparing 40,000 meals a year, the Switchpoint Community Resource Center offers lodging and housing assistance, counseling, hygiene resources and job placement assistance.

Giving back to the communities we serve is a critical part of our mission, and we are proud to support the Community Soup Kitchen in their effort to help the most vulnerable citizens of Washington County,” said Robert Roche, president of Roche Enterprises, parent company of Sand Hollow Resort.

Donations, grants and volunteers help keep the Switchpoint Community Resource Center and its operations going.


Individuals who wish to donate financially to Switchpoint can do so through its website. Additional ways to donate services and resources are also featured on the website.


Switchpoint Community Resource Center has an up-to-date wishlist on its website that contains items many people don’t think of when going to donate. Much-needed items like toilet paper, trash bags and other supplies cannot be purchased with grant funds. Other items like city bus passes help Switchpoint clients with needed transportation around the city.

Anyone wishing to donate items should look at the wishlist first.


Switchpoint is always looking for people who want to donate their time. A volunteer coordinator can match volunteers to jobs that suit their skill sets or schedules.

A list of available volunteer positions can be found here.

Switchpoint is located at 948 N. 1300 West in St. George.

    Kudos to Sand Hollow GC for sponsoring the tournament. Lots of great folk participated both on the volunteer side and those that played.
    Our foursome had a great time, the course conditions were pretty good and the food was great.
    Look forward to next year’s event.
