We are honored to have been able to sponsor the Kids Eat program from the USANA Foundation.
Even with school canceled in the Spring due to COVID-19, they continued to deliver 850 weekend bags each week. In addition to their regular program, they also provide temporary COVID relief bags to schools that had families under extreme distress. These larger size pantry bags were distributed to schools at their request and hand-delivered by their teachers and staff to the porches of their needy families.
We were able to help provide 400 pantry bags and 16,000 meals to those students and families in need throughout the Salt Lake School District.
We are grateful to be a part of such a great organization that helps make sure the kids in our community don't go hungry!
For nearly 28 years, Project HEART and Rabbi Benny Zippel with the Chabad Lubavitch of Utah have helped support thousands of at-risk teens in our community. Their work is inspiring, and we are grateful for the opportunity we had to donate $50,000 alongside so many others to help them both reach and surpass their goal with their Charidy fundraising campaign yesterday!
