There are many donation drives happening in the Salt Lake area this time of year. The Road Home is fortunate to have a variety of community partners helping collect warm clothing, coats, boots, blankets and other items to help the people staying with us. From the Park City Snowboard team to Salt Lake Harley-Davidson, our Road Home family continues to grow and our hearts are warmed by the amazingly kind gifts we receive.
Our friends at Salt Lake Harley-Davidson took the time to write us about the donations they’re collecting:
” The Harley-Davidson community tends to be very generous and patriotic. We do not take our freedom for granted. So many of us are one paycheck away from homelessness. We have not advertised at all and yet our boxes are getting full. We are also involved in a bicycle giveaway for 250 children who may not ever have a bicycle otherwise. For a $50.00 donation, you have the possibility to win a 2012 motorcycle and give a deserving child a bike, warm coat and a helmet. Our owner believes in giving back. We are hoping to generate enough donations to keep some of your residents warm this winter, diapers for a beautiful baby and anything else that could put a dent in the Road Home Shelters needs!
Merry Christmas to all of you and we wish you many Christmas blessings,
Joe and Heidi Timmons and the entire Salt Lake Harley-Davidson Family”
