Give Back This November

The season of giving has officially started and LiveDAYBREAK is providing opportunities for the community to give back. Last year Daybreak donated more than $6,000 in items to children and families in need and helped them have a magical holiday experience. This year, we are trying to expand our reach and provide gifts to two charities: Christmas Box House and Utah Community Action.

 

The Christmas Box International (Project Elf) helps to fill Santa's sleigh for children, teens and young adults in our community who have been abused, neglected or faced homelessness. Utah Community Action with Operation Chimney Drop pairs donors with low-income families who utilize our services, including head start, housing assistance, utility assistance, and food resource centers. Donors purchase holiday necessities and gifts for children, families and the elderly.

 

“All the families in these program were chosen by our staff member who work with them every day so they know the barriers they face on a daily basis,” said Utah Community Action Special Events Coordinator Avani Patel. “We want to help them out this holiday season on the stress and be sure they are getting the help they need.”

 

For Christmas, Operation Chimney Drop typically serves around 800 children and about 50 homebound seniors. You can help add to the holiday cheer. Visit the Daybreak Community Center or the Daybreak Community Association and choose an ornament (or several) off of the trees. These have items you can purchase for families in need. Be sure to drop them off at the Community Center or Glass House by December 4th.
