2017 UDP Giving Tree
This year, the Utah Democratic Party has partnered with Circles Salt Lake to participate in a Giving Tree for some of the families they serve. If you would like to make some wishes come true for a couple of these families, you can either:
- Head down to our headquarters at 325 W 800 N, Suite C400, Salt Lake City 84103 and pick one of the “wish ornaments” on the office tree. Please drop off items by Friday, December 8 by 4pm at our headquarters or contact Circles Salt Lake for other options. — OR —
- Donate directly to Circles Salt Lake
Circles Salt Lake believes no one should live in poverty. They believe strongly the responsibility for both poverty and prosperity rests not only in the hands of individuals, but also with societies, institutions, and communities. Their mission is to inspire and equip families and communities to thrive and resolve poverty.
They approach this by combining best practices in several disciplines including community organizing, case management, grassroots leadership, S.M.A.R.T. goal setting, financial literacy, mentoring, peer-to-peer counseling and learning, and child/ youth development. With the assistance of dedicated volunteers and community members, they can provide resources to their families which include job opportunities, transportation, healthcare, and a variety of other services.
When our communities and families come together with support and resources, poverty can be resolved for good.
