Westvale is my neighborhood elementary school and I have been volunteering there every chance I get for the last four years. The teachers there do so many great things with so little. Please consider donating any amount to this awesome Title 1 school in West Jordan. Click HERE to go to Theresa Christensen’s Donation Page.
I will be taking sleeping bag donations until December 15, 2015.

Until today I had never heard of YWCA Utah, here is a little bit about this organization:
- The YWCA Utah is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
- The YWCA Utah serves more than 11,000 people annually and about 1,000 reside at the YWCA each year.
- No, the YWCA is not affiliated with the YMCA.
“Since 1906 the YWCA Utah has been a voice for women, a force for change, and a place for hope. Our enduring belief is that better lives for women – all women – will lead to stronger families and communities. Throughout the years the YWCA’s underlying purpose has remained the same but we have changed as women have changed, as the needs of our families have changed, and as our world has changed. Since our earliest years we have responded to the needs and aspirations of local women with innovative programs, promoted the rights and interests of women, and advocated for positive social change that creates better lives for all.”

Thank you!

This one doesn’t really fall under organization or individual, it’s just a good way to get rid of all that extra Halloween candy.
Happy Halloween! Did your kiddos get more candy than they’ll ever be able to or should ever eat? We live right down the street from Beehive Homes, an a assisted living and memory loss facility in West Jordan, and this year a few days after Halloween the kids and I made 46 snack-size bags of candy to give to all of their residents. Here are a few other great ways to get rid of your kiddos candy:
- Ronald McDonald House (935 E. South Temple, Salt Lake City)
- Primary Children’s Hospital
- The Road Home
- Your Local Food Pantry
Let’s help one of our own! Please consider donating gently used or new items and if you’d like to make the Bernard family a meal, click HERE.
