Refugee Winter Clothing Drive | Buzz Blog
We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Refugee Winter Clothing Drive



Salt Lake City’s refugee community could use your help in donating gently used winter clothing to the International Rescue Committee’s winter-clothing drive this month.---

Adjusting to a new home is one thing, a new country another, and for many refugees, adjusting to a Utah winter is no picnic. That’s why it helps when fellow Salt Lakers can be neighborly enough to donate winter-clothing items to the IRC to help refugees and their families dress warmly this winter. Currently, the IRC is in need of coats, gloves, mittens, sweaters, boots, hats, socks and scarves for men, women and children.

Drop off all donations throughout the month of October at 231 E. 400 South, Suite 50 in Salt Lake City. Contact Shawn Strong at 801.328.1091, ext. 457 or at
