Our wonderful volunteers have been busy over the past few months, donating more than 900 hours of their time to our organization! Whether sorting donations in the warehouse, preparing and serving dinner to the residents, finger painting with the kids, helping at the front desk, our volunteers are integral to all we do here.
On average, our Midvale Family Center provides shelter for approximately 200 children per day. In partnership with Intrepid Agency, Utah Eye Centers, and select Payless and Old Navy stores, we were able to provide brand new backpacks, school supplies, and shoes to the children staying at The Road Home.
We had a unique opportunity to display beautiful flower arrangements around the women’s side of the Salt Lake Community Shelter through a partnership with the company “Repeat Roses.” Their mission is to repurpose event flowers by donating bouquets to various organizations across the country and later picking up the twice-enjoyed blooms for composting.
The Salt Lake Community Shelter was lucky to have two amazing local companies serve in different capacities. Employees from Adobe helped receive, sort, and organize multiple bags of donations in our warehouse; ensuring that all items are ready for pick-up by our residents! Market Street Grill prepared and served their delicious clam chowder, salad, and sourdough bread to over 175 women, resulting in full bellies and warm souls!
The Midvale Family Center also hosted volunteer opportunities for two outstanding, local companies. Members from The Rock Church organized donations and made fleece pillow buddies, perfect for the colder weather! Employees from Intermountain Medical Center prepared and served a meal to our families, cleaned the kitchen and dayroom, and donated school supplies. Groups like these remind us how amazing our community truly is!
Words cannot express our appreciation for every volunteer who steps through our doors. Thank you for your continued dedication to making a positive impact in your community!
