Make a Wish

During the month of August we have the incredible opportunity to help grant wishes for many Utah children facing life-threatening and debilitating illnesses through a partnership with Make a Wish Utah. During the drive you will have the opportunity to purchase an icon during checkout and contribute to granting a wish of a Utah child. Because of your generous support over the last ten years, we have been able to grant more than 95 wishes and make a difference for numerous children by providing experiences and adventures they otherwise might not get to participate in.

Wishes can range from travel opportunities to once in a lifetime experiences, but regardless of the nature of the wish, each one provides hope and smiles to children and their families. Most often, wishes are granted at a time that the child and their family need an extra boost to get through a difficult time.

We appreciate your support and can’t wait to help even more Utah children this year.

Canned goods mixed with other fresh ingredients are perfect for quick and easy meals your family will love. Here are five ways to use canned case lot items in your everyday cooking.

  1. Top your pizza with canned fruits or vegetables. Canned pineapple and olives are the perfect pizza toppings. Don’t forget to keep canned tomato sauce on hand for your pizza sauce.
