Still time to seek help from Sub for Santa this Christmas

The Sub for Santa program is alive and well in Cache Valley, but Executive Director Shanae Ames says the deadline for making applications is Friday, December 1st. 

Ames says there was a misunderstanding and some people thought Sub for Santa would not exist this year, but fortunately it continues. Now, she says people need to act soon.

“We really need you to fill out an application,” Ames explains. “You can find applications at the library, at the food pantry, the WIC, HEAT and BRAG offices, Somebody’s Attic and Department of Workforce Services.

“Get those applications filled out and postmarked by this Friday. Get them sent in so we can help people this year.”

Ames says, fortunately, there are not as many people needing help this year. So far the number is less than 100 families. But she says those who need it need help badly, and she hopes it will receive strong support this season.

According to the group’s <a href=”” target=”_blank”>website</a>, the top 20 requests of the year are as follows:
