Utah Administrators Assemble Care Kits For Students In Need

114th Fighter Wing

Administrators from more than 60 schools in northern Utah gathered ahead of the first day of classes to assemble "care kits" for students in need.

The Deseret News reports administrators from the Jordan School District met Wednesday to pack more than 2,400 kits.

The kits include food, personal hygiene products and backpacks loaded with school supplies. Walmart donated the supplies.

Event organizer Peggy Margetts said the kits help students in a discrete way and show students their school cares about their well-being.

Students will receive the kits at the start of school. Administrators said they will keep some on hand to use during the year.
