(KUTV) — We were joined by Jasmine Robinson with United Way SLC to discuss how Utahns can help schools and children during summer break.

On Friday, from 9 a.m. to noon, volunteers will meet at Cottonwood High School to participate in a series of projects, such as kit packing, painting the baseball field fence and deep cleaning the school.

According to Robinson, "upwards of 95 percent of schools (we help) have kids on free and reduced lunch during the year," Robinson said. "But during the summer they don't the same resources and same opportunities, so we help bridge that gap with the different snack kits."
