97.1 ZHT is calling on our listeners to help us collect school supplies like never before – by Packing Pods full of them! We’ve teamed up with The Salvation Army, Granite Education Foundation, and Security Service Federal Credit Unionto collect and distribute school supplies to kids in need in Utah. But of course, we’re doing this ZHT style, which means Frankie, Jess, Kylie, and Wayne will be competing to see who has the most loyal fan base and who can collect the most donations to pack their pod the fastest!
Granite Education Foundation provides support and opportunities to 92 schools and over 68,000 students, 65% of whom live at or below the poverty line. 57% of their schools face overwhelming hunger issues, meaning that each of those schools have more than half of their student population qualifying for and relying on free or reduced school lunches based on household income.
Donation barrels for the Pack the Pod campaign are available at all Smith’s and Security Service Federal Credit Union locations in Salt Lake County. You can find a full list of what donations are needed below.
Be sure to join us on August 10th when we will be broadcasting and taking donations live from the Target in Fort Union to see who can pack their pod the fastest.
