Don’t sit on it, especially when you could donate it. That includes chairs, tables and any furnishings that are probably not gonna make it in the next move. The local International Rescue Committee needs your castoffs for local refugee families. Then, don’t miss hearing about the future of growth of Salt Lake City from Mayor Becker’s economic development go-to-guy, Frank Gray. And on Tuesday night, take a stroll and learn about frogs and their eco-systems.

Furnishings for International Rescue Committee
There may be a crap-ton of Deseret Industries outlets around town, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other groups looking for your gently used furniture. The International Rescue Committee, helps in the resettlement of hundreds of local refugees, from as far away as Myanmar, Iraq and even Cuba. The nonprofit is accepting kitchen tables, chairs, dining sets, etc. ... all tax deductible.
