Nebo is Partnering with Tabitha’s Way

Nebo is partnering with Tabitha’s Way for a new event called Read & Feed.

The purpose of this event is to encourage children to continue to read during the summer and to educate families facing food insecurity regarding food resources available to them and their children while they are not attending school. Our goal is to gather 10,000 gently used books that children can take home with them and keep to read during the summer.

During the month of April, we are encouraging families to donate gently used books that they no longer need and drop them off at the Tabitha’s Donation Bins at the following schools:

Springville Area:                    Spanish Fork Area:       Springville High                        Spanish Fork JuniorSpringville Junior                      Diamond Fork Junior   Meadow Brook Elementary      Brockbank Elementary                                                 Riverview Elementary                                                   Sierra Bonita Elementary   Salem Area:                            Payson Area:
Valley View Middle                   Payson Junior High
Foothills Elementary                Mt. Nebo Middle            
The children who come to the event will receive a tote bag and will be able to choose up to 10 books to read during the summer months. During the event, Tabitha’s Way will also hand out Summer Feeding Vouchers to guide families to utilize the free food resources at our pantry. Additionally, we will provide information regarding other ways and means to access free food assistance and reading programs, such as Feeding in the Park and city library reading programs within the Nebo School District.

Thank you for all your help in this worthy project. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact:
