Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r Abbington in Mapleton is holding its annual carnival supporting the “Backpacks for the Homeless” project on Saturday, September 8, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the front parking lot. All funds raised will go to the Backpack program.

Come to join us for a fun-filled day, no charge for carnival fun. There is a $5.00 lunch you can purchase: pulled pork sandwiches, chips, cookie and drink. Raffle items and silent auction available with great items, to raise money for the backpacks.

Abbington has been doing this project for the past 3 years.

We have a resident who fell through the cracks of healthcare. He was able to qualify for a government program, which helped him to get help so he can live at the Abbington. He was homeless for about 6 months, and he said his backpack was his life, everything of value was in it. When we heard his story, we decided this is a project that we want to be able to help with and raise funds for. We use the funds from our carnival to provide the security that the backpacks offer. We provide a large backpack, handmade quilt, 2 $5.00 gift cards for a hot meal, insulated mug, socks, soap, shampoo, deodorant, candy, mints, toothbrush, toothpaste and a hat.

Come support our great cause and help others. Abbington is located at 1483 West 800 South, Mapleton. Call Shelly Goslin at Abbington 801-515-6699 with any questions.
