UT: The Road Home Apple Tree Program - Help Homeless Children!


The Road Home Apple Tree Program collects back-to-school clothing, shoes, and supplies for the children living at the homeless shelter so they can go back to school with what they need.  This year they have more children in need than any other year.  Because of this they need more help and encouragement to get people to help with the cause.

Intrepid officially launched a campaign to collect new back-to-school clothing, shoes and supplies for more than 100 children living in the Road Home, a Salt Lake family homeless shelter. The Road Home Apple Tree campaign is available in 35 locations at DownEast, Payless ShoeSource, Salt Lake Area Staples, Sanctuary Day Spa and Intrepid, to provide an opportunity for the public to select an apple with the name of a child and purchase a needed item for back-to-school. The items, which should be new and unused, can be donated at any of the campaign partner locations from Provo to Ogden.

At the completion of the campaign, which runs through Aug. 13, Intrepid will deliver the clothing and school supplies to the Road Home before the school year begins. During the seven-year history of the Road Home Apple Tree, more than 13,500 articles of clothing and school supplies have been donated, benefitting more than 380 children living in the Road Home shelter.

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner

I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days.


My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But after…

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
