Spanish Fork students make wishes come true

Students at Spanish Fork High School and other high schools in Nebo School District joined together to celebrate life and raise money during Spanish Fork High School’s annual “Homeless for a Night” on March 2. The students camped out from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. that night.

“Homeless for A Night” is a fundraiser aimed at raising awareness and money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The ultimate goal was to grant the wish of a 7-year-old Spanish Fork child with leukemia. Her wish is to go to Walt Disney World to meet all of the princesses and visit Harry Potter World in Florida. Participants at the event paid to take part in a concert featuring Utah band Foreign Figures, a dance, basketball, video games and a movie.

“It’s been fun to see Homeless for a Night evolve into something bigger each year,” says Colby Roberts, SFHS student body officer in charge of service. “This means so much to us because we get to help nonprofit organizations in our own fun way.”

Scouts hope to hit 20 million meals collected

Community Action Services and Food Bank and Tabitha’s Way Local Food Pantry, together with the Utah Food Bank, are working with the Boy Scouts of America to help Fight Hunger Statewide during the 32nd annual Scouting for Food, scheduled for Saturday, March 17. This food drive comes at a critical time when supplies at Community Action Services and Tabitha’s Way are beginning to thin following the holiday season. This effort has provided the equivalent of over 18 million meals statewide since 1997 alone, and Scouts hope to hit the 20 million meal mark with this year’s efforts.
