Help Lone Peak Hospital Secure School Supplies for CSD Students in Need

No student should worry about starting school without basic school supplies.

But a growing number do, which is why Lone Peak Hospital is partnering with the Canyons Education Foundation to stock Canyons District’s Resource Closet in time for the 2023-2024 school year.

The Resource Closet is a central storehouse of food and hygiene items and school supplies that Canyons schools can draw on to replenish their pantries or extend a little emergency support to students and families in need. As part of Lone Peak’s 10th Anniversary celebration, hospital employees are collecting donations to “stock the closet” to meet the expected rise in demand for the coming year.

“Each year, thousands of Canyons District student families struggle to afford basic school supplies,” said Foundation Officer Denise Haycock. “With inflation, homelessness, and food insecurity on the rise, more families are struggling financially, and back-to-school shopping can add to their stress. Lone Peak’s generous school-supply drive will help lighten the load for so many, and make back-to-school season the exciting time it should be.”

Anyone can contribute to the cause. Donations are being accepted through Aug. 15, 2023, and giving is easy:

  • Purchase goods from a pre-chosen donation registry at
  • Bring donations to Lone Peak Hospital, 11925 State Street in Draper
  • Bring donations to the Canyons District Office, 9361 S. 300 East in Sandy

All donations will benefit CSD students and families.

“People are often surprised when I tell them how much need there is within Canyons District,” said Canyons Community Schools Specialist Michele Vogeler. “At one time, poverty was mostly consolidated in rural and urban areas. But nationally, we are seeing more families in suburban and metropolitan areas living below the poverty line, and that’s true in Canyons as well.”

About 25 percent (8,250) of CSD’s 33,000 student are economically disadvantaged. Another 1,650 are homeless. CSD has five Title I schools and is home to one of Utah’s largest family shelters.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
