Dear friends of USDB,

We hope you enjoy this snapshot of the great work underway and success stories from across the State of Utah.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Giving Back

Ogden elementary students at the Kenneth Burdett School worked on a project that will make an impact in the lives of others. The students learned about hurricanes, homelessness, and what they could do to make a difference.  The students had great ideas and enjoyed making blankets for the local children's homeless shelter. The students will continue the activity next week, and they will be including food and hygiene items into the packs.

Nice work students, teachers and staff!
