Young volunteers assembled welcome packets for the faculty and staff of Woodrow Wilson Elementary Thursday, helping with the school's plan to surprise them with candy and supplies in the fall.
The project was organized at the school as part of the United Way of Salt Lake's annual Summer of Service, a program that connects kids ages 5 to 18 and their families with volunteer opportunities in the Salt Lake City area.
Kids and families can find out more about Summer of Service and find a list of projects by calling 2-1-1 or visiting United Way's website, www.uw.org.
