Hello UTRID Membership! I hope you are staying warm…I can’t believe it’s so cold, so fast! We have been asked to share a service opportunity for the Thanksgiving holiday. Please read below and sign up to donate and/or volunteer if you can. It’s a great way to support our Deaf community members during the holidays.
Teddi, UTRID President
“We (DSDHH) would like to host a Thanksgiving dinner for our community members who may have nowhere to go for this holiday on Nov. 24th from 11 am to 1 pm. Holidays is a very challenging and lonely time for many of our community members who may not have family or friends to spend Thanksgiving with OR be able to socialize in an inclusive environment utilizing their preferred modes of communication which may include signing.
We are seeking donors who may be willing to donate various food for this dinner (we prefer food items instead of money due to State of Utah’s policies if possible- could be already cooked or we can prep the donated food)? It’s estimated that up to 70 people will attend so we will need enough food to cover up to 70 people.
If you are interested in buying items and donating to us, please go to this link and sign up for which items you’d like to purchase, etc. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1gnudB-Kz4FJmPveIF3wi_n5QEAoS7dY7/edit?usp=sharing&ouid=100068223787373814325&rtpof=true&sd=true
Let me know if you need more info about this.
