Morgan High School FCCLA/FFA, in cooperation with Morgan Middle School, Morgan Elementary and Mountain Green Elementary, just completed its annual Christmas service project for needy families in our community.
A Giving Tree was set up at Ridley’s, and as usual the members of our community are absolutely awesome.  We had wonderful support from the community and students.
The Morgan Middle School and Morgan Elementary students contributed over 4,000 cans of food from their food drives.  Mountain Green Elementary donated gifts.  Students in the high school contributed money and food items as well.
As part of our giving tree project, the high school students had the opportunity on Dec. 9, to go to the Gateway in Salt Lake City and be part of the Build-A-Bear workshop for charity.  Each student paid to attend the event and the money was used to make bears for the children on our giving tree.  
We were able to purchase 40 bears and donated them to DCFS (Division of Child and Family Services) as well as many of the children on our tree.  We had the most wonderful time and we encourage all students who want to make a difference in the life of a child to participate in this project next year.
This Christmas season we were able to help 31 families in our community to have a very Merry Christmas.  We would like to thank the members of our community for their generous donations of time, money, food and gifts to our project.  We truly made a difference in people’s lives this Christmas season.
It is truly wonderful to live in Morgan County and share the spirit of the season with such loving, giving and generous people.
