Utah Refugee Connection

Helping people learn

Last year over 1,000 people attended refugee cultural nights.

Utah Refugee Connection

Helping people serve

Last year we coordinated over 34,000 hours of service benefiting refugees.

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.

Huge thanks for all of you in our Utah Refugees Connection/Serve Refugee community for rallying to get us “All Purpose” Kits! We have not been able to keep up with the demand.

Whether you donated to our fund (link in profile) or are bringing in kits, we are so grateful.

Keeping refugee families homes clean and germ free will help so much.

We have one “All Purpose” kit left in our Sharehouse. We’ve had a high demand for these and are having a hard time keeping up.

We want to help refugee families keep their homes clean and free of germs. We’d love your help!

Rally some friend or neighbors or simply share this post.

Challenge two people to help by tagging them.

We know on Thursday, we will have refugees and social workers asking for these kits.

When we create and share kits with members of the refugee community, it is a reminder that there are hundreds of people that care about them and want them to feel welcome here.

Throughout the year we try and have events to teach them about America’s unique holidays. Valentines Day, Mother’s Day and Halloween can be confusing. We’ve suspended those events until covid is not so pervasive but still want them to have holiday items and feel special. Eventually, we will be back to large scale celebrations. Until then, thanks for contributing Valentine kits and donating toward “You Belong Bags!”

We wish you could see the faces of those who receive of the items that you generously make possible.

It’s a joy!

We only have 4 more drop off days for Valentine Kits.

If you are out shopping this weekend, pick up an extra box or two for our refugee neighbors.

We will take Valentine kits until February 2. (We need time to package the “You belong bags” and distribute them in the community.

Gender neutral boxes appreciated. No candy kits please.
