GO AND SERVE

Service EVENT

August 2, 2019

 

The purpose of the FREE Friday Service Event is to support the Utah Area Presidency in their mission and goals, specifically to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to care for the poor and needy.

We received a sizable grant from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to help fund a portion of this service. We have a goal to raise an additional $40,000 to accomplish all the services listed below!

Even though this event is free, it is important for us to know how many people will be attending. If you want to come to the Service Event on Friday ONLY, please click here to register:

GRANITE EDUCATION FOUNDATION

40,000 children in the Granite School District are living right at, or below the poverty level, with most attending Title 1 schools. Families cannot afford basic school supplies, and so their children cannot engage in their educational activities. Getting the needed supplies will impact the children by allowing them to participate in their educational pursuits, which will impact their future ability to move out of poverty.

goal: 2,500 backpacks
cost per backpack: $10.00
