When Dylan Ence was a freshman at Dixie High School in St. George, he and his family visited the Mexican village of Patamban Michoacan to provide the local schools with supplies and sports equipment. While there, he learned that many of the children would sleep at their school so they didn’t have to make the miles-long trek to and from classes every day.
Dylan is now a senior and says he’s never forgotten about the poverty he witnessed during that trip. He has spent the last 4 years collecting backpacks, socks, gas money, and school supplies for the village. He recently purchased a school bus so he can drive all of the supplies there himself. He plans to make the trip on December 20.
