For over 35 years, United Way of Utah County’s Sub for Santa has coordinated with local schools and nonprofits to provide gifts for children in Utah County. These gifts include

books, educational toys, and winter clothes. This is a temporary Christmas assistance program that assists families that are not getting help from anyone else.
