Canyon School District donation drive is a success
SALT LAKE CITY — A community donation drive resulted in hundreds of pounds of goods for those in need within Canyon School District (CSD).
The District’s Title I schools, in alliance with the Canyon Education Foundation, are creating a center to host goods for students. Schools can draw on the center to restock food pantries, winter coats and shoes for students, according to a CSD Facebook post.
“This central warehouse will help us more equitably meet the needs of all students who need a little extra help,” Michele Vogeler, Community Schools Coordinator said.
Sallianne Wakley, an Instructional Supports Department Specialist for the district, helped coordinate the donation drive.
Other members of the community contributed to hosting the drive, such as Wakley and Sue Collins from Sandy Elementary.
