Our History & Misson

History

The Sandy Club, “A Safe Place for Boys and Girls” was founded in 1991 by Linda Martinez Saville as a haven for youth in the Sandy City area. Linda’s unique upbringing and career opportunities showed her the importance of taking care of every person around her. What began as a double wide trailer over 25 years ago has become a fully-dedicated, independently operated “safe place” facility for hundreds of children each year; and a legacy of compassion, determination, and service in Sandy City.

Today

The Sandy Club has been around longer than any youth who attends the facility, yet the vision and compassion that began with Linda Martinez Saville still permeates the building and shapes every interaction inside its walls. Each day children are given a snack, opportunities to play, socialize, and exercise, and opportunities for study help and tutoring with Sandy Club staff and administration. Each year the children are given opportunities to learn about their communities through field trips and community outreach programs from both private and public institutions. The children also receive school supplies, food, coats, and shoes as need dictates and donations support.

The Sandy Club, “A Safe Place for Boys and Girls” began as an organization dedicated to changing lives for young people. As we have grown, so has our range of services. Currently, we help individuals and families by:

  • Providing social interaction for youth with their peer group
  • Providing opportunities for play and activity
  • Teaching healthy lifestyle habits
  • Providing academic tutoring and assistance
  • Access to professional counseling services
  • Access to new clothing and school supplies
  • Providing temporary food support for members and their families
  • Connecting members to community services and support programs

Each of these services is supported through generous donations of time, resources, and materials from generous patrons in the community. The Sandy Club has made an incredible impact in the Sandy City community over the past 25 years and, with the help of generous donors and patrons, plans to ever increase its outreach, opportunities, and impact for many years to come.Please consider donating financial or material resources.

Holiday Giving

We LOVE the holidays here at The Sandy Club. The lights, candy, and fun are irresistible. However, we know that the winter is hard on MANY of our families. Many individuals suffer from cold, lack of food, and exclusion from the merriment and joy that should accompany the Thanksgiving and December holidays.

We KNOW that you want to help. Thank you for reaching out to serve those around you. We have families here who can use your help. Our families are specifically in need of:

  • NEW winter coats, hats, and gloves
  • NEW socks and underwear in various sizes
  • $25 grocery gift cards

We here at The Sandy Club are so fortunate to see the good you do and we hope that you will remember the joy of giving selflessly this holiday season. You are a hero to these kids and their families. Thank you—sincerely, thank you.
