Health Insurance Seminar
Don't miss the Dec. 15 deadline to sign up for Obamacare, aka the Affordable Care Act. No, it's not dead yet, and neither are you. Get insurance while you still can. It's especially important if your employer doesn't provide it and you don't want to be fined for lack of coverage. Ark Insurance Solutions is holding a final Health Insurance Open Enrollment Seminar, where insurance representatives can answer questions and help you sign up immediately. Salt Lake Public Library, Level 3 Conference Room, 210 E. 400 South, Thursday, Dec. 14, 10-11 a.m., free, bit.ly/2AmhHVE.

Clothing Drives
This time of year isn't necessarily the most wonderful time. If you're homeless, out of work or just getting by, winter and the holidays can be challenging at best. Food and clothing drives are opportunities for you to express in concrete terms your outrage at the lack of government help. You can start with the 2017 EBC Winter Food & Clothing Drive to benefit Crossroads Urban Center. The drive's Facebook page calls for "frozen turkeys, hams and other non-perishable food or clothing items to help Utah families in need during the holiday season. Simply drive up to our tent in the parking lot where EBC employees will be onsite to unload your items for you." If you miss that drive, try The Hvman Race Clothing Drive, which is seeking clothing donations for the homeless, and also has hot chocolate and food. EBC: Eccles Broadcast Center, 101 Wasatch Drive, 801-585-6013, Friday, Dec. 15, 7:30 a.m.-6 p.m., free, bit.ly/2AIoYhl; Hvman Race: 700 W. 400 South, Saturday, Dec. 16, 12-5 p.m., free, bit.ly/2nIuXxQ.

Clean-Air Fundraiser
Here's a new nonprofit worth supporting if you want to breathe. The Salt Lake Air Protectors, an activist environmental group, isn't advocating for specific policies, but rather going grassroots. They are trying to raise awareness, perform community service, support existing initiatives and "take direct action that will address the on-going air pollution crisis in Utah," at this Winter Solstice Celebration. This fundraiser includes music, a gourmet vegetarian/vegan meal with Native presenters, hoop dancing and a silent auction. Krishna Temple, 965 E. 3370 South, 801-487-4005, Sunday, Dec. 17, 4:30-8:30 p.m., $10 suggested donation, $20 three-course dinner, bit.ly/2Bi64z8.
