Things are tough financially for a lot of people this Holiday season and times are also tough for the Sub for Santa program in Cache Valley. Assistant Director Candita Jensen says more children than ever were on the approved list, yet the number of sponsors is way down. “We have 150-plus children still waiting to be sponsored, taken care of,” Jensen said Friday morning. “Most of those children are on the ShopKo Sharing Tree. So if people would like to go in there and take a look over the tree, and find an age and child they would like to adopt. There’s also some families they can adopt through the tree if they want multiple children in the same family. Or some families they can call the office for, if they’d like to do it that way.” Jensen says for kids who want bikes Sub for Santa cannot afford brand new ones but an urgent call is out for used bikes in good running condition. She says anyone willing to make contributions should call Sub for Santa at 752-6315. The deadline is Saturday evening because distributions will be made on Tuesday and Wednesday.
