What is Project Uplift?

Volunteers in Project Uplift help to uplift the spirits of veterans, wounded heroes, service members overseas, and first responders. Volunteers do this through participating in activities such as writing uplifting letters and participating in other activities that assist our country's armed forces and first responders.

How do I get involved?

To get involved, contact the program directors by phone or by email at

Activities that you might be interested in:

Bingo at the Bennion Veteran's Home in Payson

- Every Saturday morning, the Bennion Home holds a fun game of Bingo for the Vets. Help with bringing Vets to and from the game as well as playing it with them is appreciated!

- We meet at the Jamba Juice in the Wilkinson Center Saturday mornings and leave to carpool to the Bennion home around 9:45 am. Bingo starts at the home at 10:30 am and goes until about 11:30-11:45 am. If you come and carpool, expect to be back at the Wilkinson Center around 12:15-12:30 pm.

- We are looking for about 5-10 volunteers every week. Here is a link to sign-up!

Letter Writing Booths for students on campus

- In the Y-Serve office in the Wilkinson Center, we have a booth where you can stop by and write letters of appreciation for Veterans and Active-Duty Service Members for their sacrifice and devotion to our country! We also run booths around campus and the community during special events where letter writing will be available as well.

- If you would like to have us set up a booth for one of your activities, send us an email and we would love to come!

If you are interested in participating in these activities or others, please send us an email at and we can get you started!
