Bring the Holidays Home with UTRID
My name is Marc Chance, and I am speaking on behalf of UTRID, (Utah Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf). Now is again that time of the year, when UTRID hosts an exciting event known as Sub for Santa. This wonderful charity event sponsors families, who have faced unexpected challenges in recent months. Christmas may be a difficult time for some who are experiencing lean times. It is up to us in the community who are capable to make a difference in such people’s lives, and to make Christmas a little more merrier for them.
Some of you who may have participated in this event in that past will recall that we have had a giving tree at the Deaf Bazaar, where people would select items to purchase and donate at our cookie and donation drives. However, the COVID pandemic has compelled us to adapt the events towards a safer alternative for everyone. This event will be entirely virtual.
We are sponsoring two families. We have asked them to create wishlists with three or four items per member of the family. This year, we are having a wishlist on the Amazon Registry, which is open for everyone to view. If you would like to purchase an item on the wishlist, please do so. Purchased items will be sent directly to the families. In order to donate, please visit the link below and take a look at the list.
Alternatively, if you prefer to make a financial contribution, it can be done through PayPal or Venmo. The information for that is below. We rely on the support of generous individuals and businesses in our community like you. If you are able to sponsor this project with a donation, we would be most grateful for your support.
Thank you so much for your generous consideration of our request. We wish you a very happy and a safe Christmas, and to a time when we all can meet again.
