Sub for Santa
I am in need of help from all of you Cougar fans out there. I know it's only August but it's time to start preparing to help out some needy kids at Christmas time this year.
Every year Boeing in Salt Lake City has an auction to raise money for Sub for Santa. Different packages are put together and employees bid on the ones they want. This year they want to make a U of U quilt and a BYU quilt. They want to make these out of old t-shirts. That is where I need your help, we need shirts.
I know all you die hard Cougar fans have closets full of BYU gear that your wife is probably dying to get rid of. Now is a good time to go through all that gear and donate some of it to a good cause. We are looking for a variety of colors and logos from all eras. As long as it is in decent shape we want it. I'm not asking you to part with the retro hoodie that you scored on eBay, but all of the other t-shirts that you got for free at basket ball games or for cheap at the surplus sales. The more shirts we get the better this quilt will turn out. Remember, they are also making a U of U quilt, and we don't want to be shown up by a bunch of Utes do we?
The biggest hassle in all of this is going to be getting the shirts from all of you. I live in Davis County, so if you live in Davis County as well we can arrange a time for you to drop them off or for me to pick them up. I live right off the freeway so if you will be passing through it wouldn't be too far out of the way.
I make a weekly trip to Provo for a night class, as well as to each football game, and would be willing to arrange a pickup while I am down there.
If you live elsewhere and would still like to contribute it would be just fine if you could ship them to me.
If you would like to help please leave a comment on this post with a way to contact you (email or phone number) as well as where you live. I will then get in contact with you and we can work out a way to get your shirts. I will leave the comments private so that your contact information isn't out there for all the world to see. Also, please pass this along to any of your Cougar fan friends and relatives so that we can get as much help as possible.
Your help is greatly appreciated. The money raised with this auction will go a long way to light up children's faces this Christmas.
