Assistance League of Southern Utah has awarded the Washington County School District the National School Bell Award for programs and services that improve the lives of impoverished children and families.
Kay Miner, president of Assistance League, gave a short presentation about the chapter’s impact in local schools. “The Washington County School District has joined with us since 2008 in serving the children of Southern Utah. We especially want to thank Mike Carr, Amy Mitchell and 38 counselors from the Washington County schools. We couldn’t do it without them.”
“We were surprised when we realized how many children we were able to help this school year,” Miner said. “Even with COVID restrictions, we clothed more children than ever. We had twice as many shopping events so they’d be smaller, and we had half as many volunteers. As of December 2020, we held 23 shopping events and spent $94,000.”
