On June 20 United Way of Salt Lake hosted a Day of Action event where more than 170 volunteers of all ages spent the morning assembling literacy kits, sorting books, and enjoying literacy-related activities.
Volunteers donated and sorted more than 1,200 books. All of the books were then donated to refugee families at the Refugee Family Night held at Woodrow Wilson Elementary Community School, just recently on August 12.
Day of Action was a fun morning of service which provided books to families who need them. The kids were so excited during the Refugee Night event to pick out new books to take home. It was a great opportunity to combine volunteerism with meeting the needs of the refugee community.
Thank you, volunteers, for LIVING UNITED!
