Helping people give

In conjunction with Granite School District’s Educational Equity Department, we collected and distributed over $800,000 in goods and services to the refugee community last year.

We create meaningful connections between refugees, the community, and public and private organizations that support refugees in developing self-sufficient and fulfilling lives.

We are excited to start giving out costumes and Halloween kits 🎃this week! ...

Our mission is to give you opportunities to LEARN about, SERVE and GIVE to local refugees.

Here is an opportunity to LEARN.

Many refugees are celebrating a major religious festival called Dashain. It’s a celebration of good over evil. This is the longest Hindu festival in Nepal, traditionally celebrated for two weeks with prayers and offerings to Durga, the Universal Mother Goddess. The great harvest festival of Nepal, Dashain is a time for family reunions, exchange of gifts and blessings.

After any rituals, people apply red powder in the forehead as symbol of good luck and mark of celebration.

Happy Dashain to all our neighbors!

Special thanks to our friend Tek for sharing this photo of his beautiful family.

Hooray! We made our goal of being able to provide Halloween costumes and activities or 700 refugee kids living in Utah. Huge thanks to everyone who donated!🎃🙏🏼♥️ ...

We love seeing people use their gifts, time, talents and resources to do good. Moments like this are really magical. ...
