Heber Valley, Utah – The Wasatch Community Service Alliance WCSA, (the service arm of the Wasatch Community Foundation) has teamed up with the Christian Center to bring Operation Hope to Heber Valley this year.
About Operation Hope
Operation Hope, a collaboration with the Christian Center of Park City, provides Christmas presents for children up to 8th grade. Families register for the program and then “shop” for their children from a vast array of gifts donated by the community. These gifts are then wrapped before the families leave.
The deadline to deliver new unwrapped gifts to Center Stage Christian Center is 3PM Dec. 20th and donations to this incredible program can be made at http://ccofpc.org.
About Christmas Food Box
In addition to Operation Hope, the WCSA is bringing the Christmas Food Box program to Heber Valley Schools. This program provides students with 2 weeks of supplemental food for the Christmas break.
Financial donations to offset the cost of these 400 food boxes can be made thru The Wasatch Community Foundation website at http://ourwcf.org.
About Healing Hunger Here
The Wasatch Community Service Alliance has launched their Healing Hunger Here campaign to address food insecurity in our county.
1 out of 5 Utah children face food insecurity. In Wasatch County that equates to about 600 children and their families who go without due to low-paying jobs, relatively high rent, varying costs of utilities and transportation issues leaving little for food at the end of the month.
To find out how you can become more involved visit us on Facebook: HealingHungerHere and visit the JustServe.org website for opportunities to assist in our food pantries and other programs.
