r By Ashley Truscott

Christmas time is a very busy time of the year. And Springville FFA was busy preparing for the Golden Angels and families they buy Christmas gifts for. This year the chapter was able to take Christmas to residents at Provo Rehabilitation Center instead of the usual families. Each year we work with United Way to find people in our community who need help with Christmas. Once we have the list of families, or Golden Angels, we work with other clubs to ensure that everyone on the list gets a good Christmas.

Although Christmas isn’t until December, Springville FFA begins the process of Sub 4 Santa in February at the Sweetheart’s Dance Cake Auction. One of the activities during the week is a cake auction, where the girls will make and decorate a cake to be auctioned off during an assembly. The money that is raised during the cake auction is used to fund the Sub 4 Santa gifts.

Sub 4 Santa is a two-day event. The first day we go to Wal-Mart to buy the requested gifts. It is always fun to look around the store to find the very best gifts possible for the families and individuals we are helping. After the shopping is over, the members organize the gifts for the Golden Angels. The next day, we visit our Golden Angels. While there the members from our chapter go around to the rooms to sing Christmas carols to the residents and hand out oranges and candy canes. It is fun to add a little Christmas cheer to their lives and take time from our lives to provide some service during the Christmas season.
