We never know the path others are traveling

It saddens my heart that so many are sick and so many are dying. May we at this time pause and have a moment of silence for those that we have lost. They are our family members, friends

In This Issue: Serve Daily – April 2020

Remember to use be kind to change the world for the better. Learn about many people doing great things to serve their neighbors as we stand together while staying apart.

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.
