SUPPORT A SPECIFIC PROJECT YOU FEEL PASSIONATE ABOUT
Christmas Food Bag Fund
With 1,000+ children in our Heber Valley experiencing food insecurity, we wanted our most vulnerable population to not go hungry over the school break during the Christmas holidays. Food is purchased and distributed to the families participating in the Operation Hope program. Last year, 1,200 children received holiday food bags in Heber Valley.
Weekend Backpack Fund
One in eight children in the state of Utah go hungry, and about 1,000 of those live here in Wasatch County. Youth don’t go to food pantries, so our Human Services Pillar provides a program where the food pantries go to them. School-age children can discretely come and load their backpacks at school with food for the weekend.
Roonies Recognizes orchestrates local volunteers to package rice and bean meals. Your donation will 100% go back into the community in the form of food and supplies to make meal packs. Meal packs are offered at local food banks and the Wasatch County School District’s Backpack Program.
Thanksgiving Dinner Fund
Having a sense of community is an important part of overall health and well-being. This annual program is a community Thanksgiving Dinner provided by local restaurants and donors alike. We invite all to attend, and we ensure our most vulnerable residents are invited to participate.
UVU and Wasatch High School Trades Fund
Approximately 30% of Wasatch High School graduates don’t go on to college. We’re working with UVU and Wasatch High School to provide funds for a new trades program. Funds are required for equipment and staff, and partnerships for student training are needed in HVAC, plumbing, electric, and construction industries.
