Today South Kearns Elementary participated in the United Way of Salt Lake Day of Caring in commemoration of the National Day of Service.  For over 20 years United Way of Salt Lake has sponsored Day of Caring volunteer projects in the Salt Lake and surrounding communities.  Deseret Management Corporation was the South Kearns company sponsor and arranged 150 volunteers to come out to the school to read books and play games with the students.  Deseret Management Corporation also gave each student a book and a gift bag to take home.  Deanie Wimmer from KSL Channel 5 was the MC for a kickoff assembly and interviewed various folks in the school about the importance of reading and tutoring students.  Deseret Management Corporation and KSL sponsor the Read Today program in over 140 schools across the State of Utah, including South Kearns Elementary.  South Kearns was honored to partner with Deseret Management Corporation for this year’s DAY of Caring and is even more appreciative of all the volunteers who made their way to Kearns to work with our students.
