SALT LAKE CITY — Mayor Ralph Becker's office and YouthCity on Thursday kicked off their annual food and warm clothing collection drive. Donations will be accepted through Jan. 18.
The community is invited to join Salt Lake City employees, friends and family in donating food and warm clothing.
Online donations for the Utah Food Bank are accepted at www.utahfoodbank.org. Every $1 donated to the Utah Food Bank is turned into $8 worth of goods and services. A $1 donation buys more than 4 pounds of the most needed food items at a discounted price.
Food and warm clothing items also can be dropped off at most city buildings.
In addition, two collection events will be held for community members who wish to drive up and drop off donations. The drop-off location is on the east side of the Salt Lake City-County Building, 451 S. State, from 4-5:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 17, and 2-3:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 11.
All donations will benefit the Utah Food Bank and Catholic Community Services. Donations will be delivered as part of the city's annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service project at the Utah Food Bank on Jan. 21.
