“Q&A With Pepa Taufui”

Local Humanitarian Speaks About Working With Homeless Individuals

November 30, 2016

City Weekly had a Question and Answer with Pepa Taufui, gaining insight into how he became so involved with helping the homeless.

“Two decades ago, Polynesian immigrant Pepa and his wife Meridian Taufui started a journey toward becoming one of Utah's best examples of an iconic humanitarian, philanthropic couple. They migrated to America, became citizens, got jobs and raised a family. Today, they are pillars of kindness, generosity and hope to many of Salt Lake City's homeless families. It wasn't easy, but these thankful transplants have shown how important immigration can be to the growth of a kinder Utah—and America.” – Stan Rosenzweig, Salt Lake City Weekly, November 30, 2016
