YOUR BLOOD NEEDED
During the holidays, there's always a need for blood, and you just might have that missing pint. Give a little and get a free meal at St. Mark's Hospital cafeteria during the American Red Cross Blood Drive. The Bloodmobile will be available at 1200 E. 3900 South, south parking lot, Thursday, Dec. 20, 10:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., free, bit.ly/2EliU06.

WAYS TO HELP AT THE HOLIDAYS
Christmas isn't just a time for cheer—it's also a time for hope. You can be part of that promise in the run-up to the holidays. We'll start with the 25th Annual Christmas Dinner for the homeless. The Salt Lake City Mission needs help to feed the hungry and homeless on a day when other families are in front of the fireplace. The Mission will provide a warm meal, shelter and gifts—and you can help. There are still some slots to be filled—parking security and cleanup, for instance. Christian Life Center, 1055 N. Redwood Road, Tuesday, Dec. 25, 7 a.m.-4 p.m., free, bit.ly/2EvCRlI. The Mission also is giving out free holiday boxes. Salt Lake City Mission, 1151 S. Redwood Road, Ste. 106, Friday, Dec. 21, 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m., free, bit.ly/2PDmCEu.

FIT TO RECOVER
You can help out families of those incarcerated at Utah State Prison in Draper at Power of Community. The nonprofit organization Fit to Recover needs help wrapping and delivering presents and Christmas dinner boxes they have collected, and distributing them to families in need. 789 W. 1390 South, 801-410-8988, Saturday, Dec. 22, 3-6 p.m., free, bit.ly/2rDfsGC.

HARM REDUCTION VOLUNTEERING
Yes, it's on Christmas Day. You can learn to become a volunteer at the Utah Harm Reduction Coalition's Monthly Volunteer Orientation and find out more about how it changes lives. You've heard about Naloxone. It's a life-saving intervention medication for drug overdoses and an integral part of harm reduction. "We need reliable and informed volunteers who are comfortable supporting the work that we do in communities across the state," the even. Existing volunteers are welcome to this, too. 91 E. Fort Union Blvd., 801-569-1995, Tuesday, Dec. 25, 6-8 p.m, free, bit.ly/2GtusBl.
