Utah's delegates to the Republican convention stuffed 1,000 relief packages for people affected by Hurricane Isaac on Monday, a service project that has become a tradition at the Republican convention.
They packed up another 400 bags with school supplies for low-income students in the Tampa, Fla., area.
"We really want to help those who are in danger's way and are in need," said Stan Lockhart, a former Utah Republican Party chairman. "I think these service projects highlight what the Republican Party is all about. Individuals should be involved in helping out whenever they can without the coercion of the government."
