In November the City staff completed a “Giving Back” service project. City Manager, David Bunker, asked the staff to think of ways that they can provide service and assistance in our community. This year City staff made personal donations to purchase materials to assemble 52 adult and child hygiene kits. Additional donations were provided by Walmart-Cedar Hills, Lone Peak Dental, Cedar Hills Family Dentistry, and Lexington Heights Dental. Each adult kit contained shampoo, soap, lotion, wash cloth, toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, toilet paper, deodorant, and a razor. Each child kit contained comb, wash cloth, bath soap, bath toy, toothbrush, toothpaste, and lotion. The kits were delivered by staff members to the Community Action Services and Food Bank in Provo, where they had the opportunity to tour the Community Action facility and learn how donations can benefit those in need. The staff plans to make this an annual tradition.
