Payson High's Latino's in Action Club (LIA) has been working diligently over the past few weeks to collect letters for Macy's department store and the Make a Wish Foundation. As a school 4,738 letters were collected and as a district 38,116 were collected. Macy's will donate $1 per letter to make wishes come true for children.
LIA president, Bryan Espinoza, says, "We couldn't have done it without the help of our fellow PHS students and teachers. We are so grateful for them." LIA adviser emailed the staff of PHS and said, "I would like to thank each and every one of you for supporting our Latinos in Action class in reaching our goal of 4,500 Santa Letters, we could have not done it without you. We actually reached 4,738 letters!"
As Christmas approaches, it is good to know that as a community people can all pull together to make a difference to those in need.
