Holiday helping through Sub for Santa

This post was written by Whitney C. our guest blogger and PR intern.

With all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it's easy to get caught up in the stress of the season. Sometimes I find myself worrying more about what Christmas ISN'T than what it IS - encouraging peace on earth and good will toward men. In my previous entry, I mentioned how my husband and I were discussing traditions we would like to have. I mentioned a couple of them, but we have since decided on a few more.

We really want to be sure that we are remembering the true meaning of Christmas and offering our help and service to those in need. This is especially important to us as we begin our family and hope to set an example of charity and service for our children. There are plenty of things that can be done to touch the lives of those around us. My husband and I want to go to a nursing home and visit the residents there. Dropping off a plate of cookies or a thoughtful card is another easy way to help people feel loved and appreciated.

If you or someone you know is looking to make a financial contribution this holiday season, you can also become a sponsor for United Way of Utah County's Sub for Santa program. More than 280 families with about 700 kids still need sponsors. Sub for Santa not only helps provide children with Christmas presents, but it helps fosters financial stability through workshops where applicants learn about low-cost Christmas traditions, budgeting and other community resources that are available. For more information about becoming a Sub for Santa sponsor, visit or call 801-356-6300.
