Annual Kiwanis Sub-for-Santa Food Drive

r By Douglas G. Hamilton

Early Saturday morning, December 8, hundreds of youth and adults will be fanning out across Springville to pick up bags of food donations to the 30th annual Springville Kiwanis Sub-for-Santa drive.

Last year at this time, citizens of Springville donated 1,600 service hours and over 26,000 pounds of food to the effort. Those donations went to almost 350 Springville families (including over 700 children) via local churches and the Nebo School District. In addition, generous corporate donations plus proceeds from the Kiwanis Scone Booth funded Walmart gift cards given to those children.

To prepare for the food drive, the Springville High School Key Club, a Kiwanis-sponsored service organization, gathered together about 130 members and other student volunteers on November 8 to label those bags for distribution by local scouting organizations. On Saturday, December 8, those bags will be gathered up and delivered to the Springville Art Museum’s “Art Shop” for sorting into manageable boxes by another army of volunteers. On the following Monday, local leaders pick up the boxes and deliver them to the designated Springville families.

It is amazing what this small community can do to encourage smiles on the faces of our Springville neighbors. Please help with your generous donations.
