Hold a donation drive for food, clothing, and other basic needs

Thousands of men, women, and children come to Salt Lake City Mission each year for help, comfort, and direction from the ravages of poverty, homelessness, and addiction. Many come in need of physical assistance to help make ends meet. When you are homeless or financially stressed you live every day without much of what many take for granted – like food, clothing, life essentials, and other vital needs.

For so many, we are one of the only places people in dire need can go.  The Mission’s resources get depleted quickly. Along with financial contributions you can help by hosting a donation drive to help the Mission in providing much needed assistance to disadvantaged people who live right here in Utah.

Get Organised First

An organized effort is essential to make a donation drive successful. We suggest the following action steps.  Be creative, have fun, be encouraged in knowing you are helping to meet the greatest needs of many who are hurting, hungry, and less fortunate right here in Utah.
  • Select Your Team

    Select people that will help run the drive. The most important being a leader in charge.

  • Establish a Goal

    Specific goals are an important way to communicate a need and to encourage enthusiastic team support for the goal of the donation drive event.  Make sure every one is on the same page as to what the desired end result of the drive is for. Be specific in your goal setting.

  • Create a Timetable

    Determine the specific length of the campaign, and then make sure that time tables/deadlines is communicated clearly to everyone.

  • Contact Our Office for any assistance
