Volunteer Spotlight

“Fill the Pack” was created by one of our amazing volunteers and board member, Martha Crook.  Martha got the idea of providing holiday backpacks for homeless youth during the 2010 Christmas season. Martha loved her vivacious and energetic teenage son, David.  David unexpectedly passed away and this tragic event led Martha to Volunteers of America, Utah's Homeless Youth Resource Center. She came to the Center to donate David's clothes. While she was there, she was touched by a young homeless youth who was ecstatic and grateful for the clothes that Martha had brought in. From that moment Martha knew her son had led her to a remarkable opportunity to help so many young men and young women who needed someone like Martha in their lives.  “Fill the Pack” was created to help homeless teens acquire much needed items during the Holiday Season.  This program has now become an annual holiday drive that promotes the spirit of giving.  We are truly appreciative to so many gracious and giving individuals for making “Fill the Pack” a success each year!
