Give Back & Get Involved 

Pin It

Tis the season to help those in need, your community and your world by getting involved. This coming month, you can assist the International Rescue Committee during its 2013 Light One Candle Donation Drive to give some holiday cheer to locally settled refugee families. The new year is also around the corner, so why not see about getting involved with the community do- gooders of Peaceful Uprising by attending their monthly general meeting? Later, drop by the Salt Lake City Council for a discussion of the awarding of community development block grants.

Light One Candle Donation Drive
Dec. 2-Dec. 21
What better way to celebrate the reason for the season than by “adopting” a refugee family through the International Rescue Committee’s annual donation drive? The IRC will match you with a refugee family, for whom you can buy new or gently used gifts from their wish list, making their new home a little nicer this holiday.
International Rescue Committee, 221 S. 400 West, 801-883-8457, Dec. 2-Dec. 21,

Peaceful Uprising Community Meeting
Monday, Dec. 2

If you’ve got an interest in fighting the good non-violent fight, swing by the Peaceful Uprising general community meeting. Whether fighting for clean air or standing in solidarity with immigrants and indigenous groups, PeaceUp is tapped into a large network of progressive causes and is always looking for folks willing to make some noise for social justice. Mexican Federation, 344 S Goshen St. (1040 West), 801-747-9871, Dec. 2, 6:30-8:30 p.m.,
