For the last year that help has come through friends, family and ward members and last Friday night their efforts got an additional boost from several local businesses, who partnered with the Page football team. For every touchdown the Sand Devils scored against their opponents, Page Lumber and the Page Dental Center gave $200 to Allie’s Angels. And the Sand Devils scored 11 touchdowns, the most they’ve scored in decades.
