Volunteers of America, Utah's Annual Events
November 1, 2014
Homeless Youth Resource Center
Fill the Pack was created by our volunteer and board member, Martha Crook. She got the idea of providing holiday backpacks for homeless youth during Christmas back in 2010. Her vivacious and energetic teenage son, David, unexpectedly passed away. Martha came to our Homeless Youth Resource Center to donate David's clothes and was touched by youth that were ecstatic and grateful. From there, Martha knew her son was still with her and was giving her strength and the ability to move on. Fill the Pack is now an annual holiday drive that provides much needed support for youth and promotes the spirit of giving! Opportunities: Sponsorship, Donate, Volunteer
