Helping people learn

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. 


This amazing artist @jkirkrichards has some stunning religious art! But perhaps even more impressive is his desire to lift, support and mentor others. We love that Kirk Richards is collecting laundry detergent for local refugees in June at his Woodland Hills Studio Tour. Thank you @jkirkrichards!!♥️🙏🏼 ...

We love sharing meaningful ways to LEARN about, SERVE and GIVE to refugees.

Here is an opportunity to LEARN:
41 % of displaced people are below the age of 18.

We have approximately 65,000 refugees in Utah.

Based on this number, there are 26,650 kids making their way in our community that have been through unfathomable experiences. Being kind is always the best response.

HUGE THANKS TO EVERYONE who helped with our REFUGEE MOTHERS DRIVE THROUGH event! We served over 300!

Our amazing partners included @kengarff @graniteschools @gsdfamilycenters @taylorsville.cfa @rootshighcharter and YOU, our Serve Refugees community!

If you bought a Mother’s Day gift, car seat or a Brita water pitcher you contributed to making this day amazing. Many of your purchases were in honor of a special mom. We were touched by the notes and tributes you paid to them.

We definitely felt joy this day as we honored the refugees moms, we know, who have been through so much! 🙏🏼♥️

It was a beautiful day!

Please share with anyone who could benefit in knowing that these mothers were treated well!

Volunteers needed for a film camp for refugee teens. Tag people you know who this could be a great fit for and please share!
