Last month, Box Elder participated in their first annual Stuff the Bus drive. Thanks to the help of our partners, hundreds of donations were gathered and distributed among families. The Box Elder Community Pantry related one heartwarming story.
They told us about a family of 6 who came in for help. The family’s truck had broken down so they hadn’t been able to purchase backpacks for school. When an employee overhead the story she was able to present the family with not only backpacks but gift card’s to buy each child new shoes. The family was so appreciative of this generous gift.
United Way of Northern Utah would like to thank Box Elder for their Stuff the Bus drive. Donations were spread between the Box Elder Food Pantry, Tremonton Food Pantry, Bear River Head Start and Box Elder School District. Businesses that joined us this year to help gather supplies included: Zions Bank, First Community Bank, Bishop’s Law Group, USU and Wal-Mart. A $1,200 check was generously donated by Elevate Credit Union.
