EMPLOYEE PROJECTS FOR THE OPA COMMUNITY:
In addition to working at OPA, I am also a student at Weber State University and this semester two of my classmates and I are collecting much needed supplies for Youth Futures as a class project. Youth Futures is a non-profit, homeless youth shelter to serves youth 12-18 in our community. Attached is a flyer with more information and a list of what items they are most in need of. If you would be willing to donate, there will be a box in the elementary gym during registration on Monday, August 6th and Tuesday, August 7th. If you have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
