University of Utah, Fill a Backpack, Feed a Brain

by GOLDEN KEY INNOVATION TEAM

Golden Key International Honour Society, founded on 29 November 1977, is an academic honor society which recognizes and encourages scholastic achievement and excellence among college and university students from all academic disciplines.

For our April Service Project at the University of Utah Golden Key Chapter, we held a children’s book and school supply drive from April 11-14.  On April 15 we volunteered at Wasatch Elementary.  We gave the principal, Mrs. Julie Miller, the donations we had collected and they will go to students in the school who can’t afford books and supplies.   We advertised online with the University of Utah, and local news sources.

We then read to three class rotations: two kindergarten classes and one first grade class.  The children were broken up into groups and each of our six members read to a group of about four students.  After reading with the children for two hours, Mrs. Miller took us on a brief tour of the school.
