The eighth-grade Peer Leadership Class at Payson Junior high School made Hygiene Kits for Refugees in Bangladesh. In order to gather items to include in the kits, the students conducted a telethon where they called local businesses and residents to ask for donations.
“We had a tremendous outpouring from the public including residents, police departments, dentists, and businesses in Spanish Fork, Salem, Santaquin, Payson, and Genola areas,” PJH health teacher Todd Pyne said.
The students collected and organized the donations supplementing what they needed with monetary donations. After putting the kits together, the students delivered them to “Helping Hands” in American Fork and then boxed up donations headed for Bangladesh.
The Payson Junior High ninth-grade Peer Leadership Team collected cans from the school’s food drive, and then delivered them to Tabitha’s Way, a local food pantry. At Tabitha’s Way, the students selected and sorted food items according to type and expiration date.
Thank you Payson Junior for making a difference for others.
