August 30 Springville woke up excited for Game Day! Word spread quickly that our traveling opponents for that day’s game, Bountiful were dealing with a disastrous fire. Hundreds were evacuated and 3 homes were lost. After last year’s fire that affected some of our own students, Springville’s Student Council wanted to do something that showed our support and understanding for Bountiful. They quickly brainstormed and came up with the idea to try and raise even a little money to donate however Bountiful High School saw the greatest need. Donation buckets were placed at entrances and Student Council members went around at half time asking for spare change or dollars. They were able to raise a little over $400, half of which came from the student section alone and the rest from the community. After the game, the money was given to Bountiful’s Student Council to take back to their school. When all the post-game crowds cleared out, the Bountiful students stayed and cleaned up the trash in our bleachers. A big thanks to both Student Council’s for showing kindness, support and serving one another’s community.
