The Utah Refugee Coalition is a local nonprofit organization that helps refugees through the integration process and to create self-sufficiency and empowerment within the refugee communities in Utah.
How can you help? The Utah Refugee Coalition Shepherd's Gathering Holiday Drive needs the most help with $25 gas/grocery gift cards and with sewing simple dolls and teddy bears (using their pattern).
- The great thing about the gift cards is that they can be mailed to Utah Refugee Connection. Buy a $25 gas or grocery card and add it to a welcoming note. Please tape the receipt on the back, this helps us verify the amount. Also helpful is writing the amount on the card in a sharpie, so refugees easily see it.
Mail gift cards to our mailing address:
Utah Refugee Connection
6440 South Wasatch Blvd. Suite 100
SLC, UT 84121
- You can find more information and specific instructions for making and delivering dolls/teddy bears here.
* Hands 4 Helping: Each weekday between Dec 4 – Dec 22, we are featuring a different local charity or service opportunity to help inspire you to give and serve others this holiday season.
