A HUGE thank you to Harmons Emigration Market for donating 600 paper grocery bags to sort and carry items!
We are very excited to announce that Uintah will again be participating in a Holiday Donation Drive for East High School's Student and Family Support. This program evaluates and fulfills the needs of students and assures their basic needs are met. Approximately 64% of students at East live below the poverty line (including 80 homeless students).
The East High Boutique provides new and gently used teen-friendly clothing, new shoes, jackets and coats. The washrooms at school provide a clean and safe place for homeless and vulnerable students to shower and to use laundry facilities. They are stocked with new underwear, socks, towels and hygiene products. Their food pantry is currently being supported by generous donations from Smith's, so food items are happily not needed this year!
All of these services are provided free of charge to students and supported 100% through generous community donations. When students have their basic needs met, they are capable and empowered to succeed in school and in life! Some donations will also be going to Uintah families in need, as we show support to all the families in our community. Please sign-up to donate by going the following link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70A0E4EA4A828A4F85-uintah
We'll give each child a bag to fill with donations (THANK YOU Harmons Emigration Market!) For every bag, gift card, check or online donation, your child will get a small prize as a thank-you for remembering to bring it in. Please have all donations to Uintah before December 12. The classes that collect the most donations will get a class party to celebrate!
$25 Gift Cards to Target, Walmart, Old Navy and Costco are also greatly appreciated.
You can also donate online at: https://give.saltlakeeducationfoundation.org/ Designate "Family Support" and, when asked to specify a school, select "East High"
Checks can be made out to Salt Lake Education Fund, designated "Family Support East High".
East High Students worked together with a local graffiti artist to make the support services space unique.
