Novemberfest, a two-day craft boutique fair put on by the Little Lambs of Utah, will take place this weekend on Friday and Saturday in the Logan High gymnasium. Profits made from any items that are sold or donations that are given will be used to find this non-profit organization.
“Since we are a nonprofit everything we have is either donated or bought with money that was donated,” said Ted Chalfant, founder and president of Little Lambs of Utah. “Novemberfest is how we raise funds for our organization and also get more people involved.”
Funds raised will be used to make comfort kits for children who have recently been taken into protective custody by the Department of Child Protective Services and those who are transitioning into foster care.
“November fest is very important for us because it brings in many people in our community who are unaware of what we are doing” said Nancy Buckway, the director of Little Lambs of Utah. “The craft fair portion brings the crowd and then awareness for our cause is spread to each individual”.
At this event the Little Lambs of Utah is also encouraging the public to bring in blankets to donate for its Blanket of Their Own Drive, which goes from November through January. With an average of 1,200-1,700 blankets used annually, Chalfant said they are always in need of new blankets.
“Most of the children we see don’t even have their own blanket, so we make sure that there is a blanket in every comfort kit,” Chalfant said.
Admission to Novemberfest will be $1. More information for Novemberfest and the Little Lambs of Utah foundation can be found athttp://www.littlelambsofutah.com or by calling 435-764-4439
