Archive for December, 2010

On Monday, December 6, 2010 Susan Cox Powell will have been missing for a year.

One whole year without her and in the lives of all her friends and loved ones a year of devastation, grief and heartbreak.  For her two little boys—they’ve lost their best friend, their protector, their comforter, their living angel. 

Two events have been planned in Utah to honor Susan and remind the public that she’s still out there.  One event is planned in Susan’s hometown of Puyallup, Washington.  Someone, somewhere, knows where she is—we desperately need to find her.


Monday, December 6:

Place: Whittier Elementary School (gym)
3585 South 6000 West
West Valley City, UT

Time: 6:30-8pm

Event: Storytime

Susan loves her boys more than anything.  They are her universe, and she loved doing things with them and spending time with them.  To celebrate Susan as a mother, we are holding a storytime for families.  Please bring your children, grandchildren, family and friends.  Kids can come in pajamas and bring blankets and pillows if they want.  Cookies and hot chocolate will be provided. 

We will gratefully accept donations at this event of new or gently used books on behalf of the Granite Education Foundation.

Tuesday, December 7:

Place: Hunter Library (Meeting Room)
4740 West 4100 South
West Valley City, UT

Time: 11am-3pm

Event: Flier Distribution

The West Valley Police have developed a new “Missing” flier for Susan, and we are working with them to get the flier posted all over West Valley.  We need you!  Volunteers can come to the library on Tuesday between 11am-3pm, even if you only have half an hour during a lunch break.  We will have fliers and locations to take them. 


Tuesday, December 7:

400 River Road
Puyallup, WA
Time: 6-9pm

Event: Santa Cops

As a testament to Susan’s love of service, Susan’s parents, grandparents and other volunteers will be gathering to support Washington State Santa Cops, a non-profit Susan and her family has have worked with for several years. Volunteers will be wrapping donated gifts, sorting through donated food and preparing orders for local families. On December 16, 2010, local law enforcement officers will deliver groceries, new toys and new clothing to over 125 Puyallup-area families. Volunteers are asked to bring scissors and any NEW toys or clothes they wish to donate.
