If you wanted to do a "Sub for Santa" but it didn't work out, this is a wonderful way to contribute...
Many war-fleeing refugees, new to the Salt Lake area, are in less than desirable circumstances this holiday season. They are struggling financially, amongst other things, and are in need of many things. One of the things they need most is diapers. New disposable diapers...like Huggies or Luvs or Pampers or Kroger, or whatever. The most in-demand size? 3.
If you would like to give the gift of diapers, please drop them off at the IRC office in downtown Salt Lake City.

You are welcome to drop by any diapers you might have in your home, or a new package from the store. Either way they are extremely grateful for any donations. Typically a grant takes care of this urgent need, but it has apparently run out. I don't think any of us can imagine a world with small children and no disposable diapers and no diaper service. Let's help out!
Another option, if you are out-of-state, or can't make it downtown, is to donate money for the purchasing of diapers. You can download the form here. You'll need to include it with your check.
Have a lovely Christmas Eve!
