Sub for Santa volunteers strive to bring joy to struggling families

United Way’s Sub for Santa is working to make sure that families in Utah County are still able to enjoy the holidays. 

With the worldwide pandemic, some families are now in more need than ever. And people are still looking for a way to serve. 

For families who are looking for help, the application process has been adjusted to include safety precautions. Applicants stay in their cars, and volunteers fill out their information on a handheld screen. 

Volunteers can sponsor a family and are asked to provide a couple of items of clothing, a toy, and a couple of books for each child. 

They usually spend about $100-$125 per child. Sub for Santa for families, and Angel Tree for individuals, always need donations of either gifts or money. Donations will be taken up to Dec. 23 for this year’s program. For more information on the Sub for Santa program, to apply for help or to donate, visit
