Hey ladies:

The effects of the economic crisis are all around us! United Way of Salt Lake is taking a proactive role in response to the serious challenges presented by the current economic crisis by coordinating donations of cash and products to distribute to our community's frontline nonprofit service providers. These increased resources will not only shore up those families and individuals who are struggling during this difficult time, but also create hope for a brighter future for us all. We are calling on individuals and organizations to get involved to help our neghbors from falling into further crisis.

Nonprofit organizations are in need of various products that support their mission, provide needed items for their clients, and reduce program costs.

Needed items:

Baby products - diapers, wet wipes, formula, baby food

Blankets - new and gently used

Clothing - new socks and underwear for children and adults

Food - canned food, foods high in protein (tuna fish, peanut butter, beans, canned fruits, vegetables, and soup)

Toilet paper

Please contact Brynn if you have any questions @ her email listed above. Thanks so much for all of your help!
