YouthCity Government

Thank you to everyone who generously donated to our annual Martin Luther King Jr. Fundraiser! We are very grateful to this community for helping to Fight Hunger Statewide.

This year our goal was $1,000 and we EXCEEDED that goal with $1,500 donated!  Wow!  That means that 6,000 meals will be donated through the Utah Food Bank to families in need. 

Thank you to the volunteers who joined YCG members at the Utah Food Bank on MLK Day to sort donations and fill boxes for food delivery. Our incredible YCG members, Laynee Hall and Diya Oommen spoke to volunteers, sharing YCG’s message and MLK Day history.
