Pack the Pod with 97.1 ZHT!

97.1 ZHT is partnering with Cricket Wireless and MyWay Storage to encourage listeners to “Pack the Pod” and donate school supplies to Utah students in the Granite School District.

Everyone who donates on site on 8/6 will be entered to win one of two pair of AUTOGRAPHED ‘Bttns’ headphone/ear buds from Will. I. Am. of the Black Eyed Peas.

Did you know?

  • 64,300 students are served in the district
  • 38% of students are below literacy benchmarks
  • 54% of students live at or below the poverty line

.

Whether students return to the classroom this fall or continue learning at home, school supplies are needed now more than ever in the Granite School District. Due to COVID-19, most supplies left the warehouse and went home to students this spring. You can help empower Utah children this fall by donating money to our partners at The Salvation Army, who will use that money to buy school supplies for the Granite Education Foundation.

You can also join us on Thursday, August 6th at the Fort Union Target where we will be broadcasting live and taking drive-up donations.
