Rio Verde, Ariz. (August 19, 2021) – Residents of the Rio Verde community are thanking local first responders by donating $5,500 in Box Bar Grille restaurant gift certificates to members of the Rio Verde Fire Department, the District 7 headquarters of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office and VerdeCares, a nonprofit Arizona corporation that provides non-medical care and assistance for community residents of the lower Verde Valley.

The $100 gift certificates were recently donated to the 55 first responders who protect and serve the residents of Rio Verde and provide an opportunity for the emergency workers to enjoy dinner with a guest at Rio Verde Country Club’s Box Bar Grille. Rio Verde Country Club members donated to the “Thank You First Responders Fund” and raised the $5,500 over a two-day period in July.

“The community simply wanted to thank first responders for all of their hard work especially throughout this past year,” said Rio Verde Country Club General Manager and Chief Operating Officer Dave Ulm. “The gift certificates are a small token of the community’s appreciation for all that they do for us.”
