Children in Salt Lake, Summit and Tooele counties will also enjoy Christmas this year with the help of Volunteers of America's Sub-for-Santa program.

Those wishing to sponsor children and families in need can log onto www.uw.org. Sponsors will be provided information about the families, including children's ages and clothing and shoe sizes, and a list of toys and clothing items requested.

Families seeking assistance can call 801-746-2565 to apply for participation in the program. Spanish speakers can call 801-746-2567.
