  • Nebo is Partnering with Tabitha’s Way

Nebo is partnering with Tabitha’s Way for a new event called Read & Feed.

The purpose of this event is to encourage children to continue to read during the summer and to educate families facing food insecurity regarding food resources available to them and their children while they are not attending school. Our goal is to gather 10,000 gently used books that children can take home with them and keep to read during the summer.

During the month of April, we are encouraging families to donate gently used books that they no longer need and drop them off at Tabitha’s Donation Bins at the following schools: 


Springville Area:                                                                       Spanish Fork Area:       
Springville High                                                                         Spanish Fork Junior
Springville Junior                                                                       Diamond Fork Junior   
Meadow Brook Elementary                                                         Brockbank Elementary
                                                                                                 Riverview Elementary  
                                                                                                 Sierra Bonita Elementary  
 
 
Salem Area:                                                                              Payson Area:
Valley View Middle                                                                    Payson Junior High
Foothills Elementary                                                                  Mt. Nebo Middle
            

The children who come to the event will receive a tote bag and will be able to choose up to 10 books to read during the summer months. During the event, Tabitha’s Way will also hand out Summer Feeding Vouchers to guide families to utilize the free food resources at our pantry. Additionally, we will provide information regarding other ways and means to access free food assistance and reading programs, such as Feeding in the Park and city library reading programs within the Nebo School District.
