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 appreciate all our Serve Refugee Community members and all you do. We get many donors asking if they can give these items. Here is what we DO NOT take and why. We thought is would be helpful for you the understand.

Because our Sharehouse is small, we are very specific about items we take. We want to be as helpful a resource to our refugee friends as we can be. We run a very tight and efficient donation and distribution program.

@ccsut and @ircsaltlakecity occasionally need furniture for refugees and are good to reach out to. Additionally, Deseret Industries does a tremendous amount to help refugees including job training, English classes and offering vouchers to refugees for items they may need.

If you are still struggling to drop off donations at local Deseret Industries because of donation appointments and covid restrictions, try donating to @tosathrift. They help us with refugee mattresses and moves. They are another great program to support.

We had a beautiful week honoring these strong, resilient and beautiful women. We had a great drive through Refugee Mother' Day celebration.

Next week, we will be distributing the much needed, strollers, car seats and pack and plays many of you purchased or donated to off our Amazon Registry.

Huge THANKS to our partners! @graniteschools @gsdfamilycenters @womenworldut @elasespas @pretanewporter @kengarff @orsongygi @doterra @doterrahh @taylorsville.cfa and many of you, our Utah Refugee Connection/Serve Refugees Community Members.
