Volunteering After The HolidaysDuring the holiday season, so many people choose to volunteer as part of their yearly traditions. However, once the Christmas trees and lights are taken down, those in need are still in need. Here are some of our favorite charities that you can help into the new year and beyond.

UTAH FOOD BANK

With two major holidays centered around food back to back, donating to the Food Bank can be at the forefront of many of our minds. However, the need does not decrease as we enter the new year. You can help out by donating food or by volunteering in person as an individual, family, or group. For families, kids as young as 6 are able to participate and for groups, volunteers are required to be at least 12. For more information on how you can help, click HERE.

PRIMARY CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL

As a not-for-profit hospital, Primary Children’s relies on the compassion and generosity of the community. Whether it’s tying blankets, creating craft kits, pet therapy, information desk, or donating money, there is always a need. For more information on how you can help, click HERE.

RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE

Studies have shown that children who are seriously injured or ill are able to cope better with the trauma of staying in the hospital if they are surrounded by family. The goal of the Ronald McDonald House is to provide a place for these families to stay so all they have to worry about is their child getting better.

THE ROAD HOME

The purpose of The Road Home is to help families and individuals who are experiencing homelessness by providing shelter, emergency services, and case management. Whether it’s coming in to participate in activities, collecting clothing, or donating money, anything can help combat the issue of homelessness in our community.
