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.

One of our refugee friends arrived shortly before Halloween. She was so confused when people kept coming to her door and asking for candy. She finally started telling them she didn’t have any candy. Some kind kids eventually came back and gave her family all of their candy.
