This could be the year there is no Sub for Santa, but Candida Jensen is hoping that will not be the case. As the longtime assistant director of Cache County Sub for Santa, she has been worried before but Jensen says cash donations have been extremely slow this year.
The mission of Sub for Santa is to provide temporary assistance during the Christmas season to children of Cache Valley families who are in need. She says the Sub for Santa workers do their best to make sure they screen recipients very carefully and then match the donations from the community to the needy families.
Jensen says unless cash donations come in very soon it will be impossible to move ahead with a Sub for Santa program. Jensen is asking everyone to please help Santa and his elves, not only to make children smile on Christmas morning but also to help ease the minds of parents who are struggling this Christmas season.
Monetary donations of any amount will be greatly accepted at any Zions Bank, or you can mail them to Cache Sub for Santa, PO Box 4603, Logan, UT 84323.
