A Candyland Christmas at the Salt Lake Shopping Center

This past Saturday our Program Assistants Bri & Dani represented the Aliamanu BGCH at the Salt Lake Shopping Center Fun Fair. They created a card-making booth for youth to create greeting cards for family members or for recovering soldiers. Over 50 children from around the community had a chance to become artistic with glitter, stickers, ribbon, holiday cut-outs and more to create beautiful holiday cards for the people that mean the most to them and for troops in our community. Dani shared "It was amazing how some kids got so creative and how making a holiday card made them so happy. I had a lot of fun and I think everyone else did too!" Bri felt that "the event was a great way for the Aliamanu BGCH to get out and help other youth give back to their community."

A big thanks to our awesome staff that did a great job reaching out to youth in Salt Lake!
