Sub for Santa

Submitted by sarah.sumsion on Tue, 10/27/2020 - 09:36

The holidays are just around the corner and we want to make sure that you have information to help families in need this Christmas.  For over 35 years, United Way of Utah County's Sub for Santa has coordinated with local schools and nonprofits to provide gifts for children in Utah County. These gifts include books, educational toys, and winter clothes. This is a temporary Christmas assistance program that assists families that are not getting help from anyone else. Sub for Santa goes beyond Christmas. We also help families with taxes, parenting support, and link them to other needed resources.  Please see the flyer for more information. And thank you to UNITED WAY for looking out for children and families especially during the holidays.
