Cure for the Cold, Holiday Pet Super Adoption & Dance Classes for a Cause | Citizen Revolt | Salt Lake City | Salt Lake City Weekly
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 PressBackers.com, 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

’Tis the season to be jolly … and to freeze while you’re scraping ice from your windshield. But if that’s what you consider suffering, try living out in the cold. To help those who have to survive outside during the winter, contribute to a local winter-clothes drive. It’s also the holiday shopping season, so how about adopting a rescued animal and giving it as a special gift? Finally, if you’re looking for the opportunity to shed holiday weight and guilt, why not check out a free salsa-dance lesson, with all proceeds going to a good cause.

Cure for the Cold
Friday, Dec. 3

Join the University of Utah’s Pre-Med American Medical Student Association in helping to warm the wintertime for Salt Lake City’s homeless. You can drop off winter clothing, food or money at boxes around campus up until the day of the event. Everything will be donated to the Fourth Street Clinic and Volunteers of America. Remember, a little warmth really is the cure for the common cold.
Presidents Circle, University of Utah, Dec. 3, 2-11 p.m.
