Are you looking for ways to give back to your community? Here are a few opportunities to volunteer (a great way to make new friends!) or donate.


Preserve Allen Park

Sign up to help preserve Allen Park with Salt Lake City Public Lands on Thursday, Sept. 7, 6-8 p.m. Volunteers will assist with tasks like weeding, cleaning, and clearing fallen branches throughout the park.



YWCA Utah is in need of donations for the families on their campus. Items include fitted sheets for a twin bed, pillows, shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. You can schedule a donation drop-off or order directly from their Amazon wishlist.


Maven District Block Party

The Maven District is throwing a block party on Sept. 30, and they’re looking for volunteers to help with the event. You can sign-up for 2-4 hour shifts between 7:30 a.m.-3 p.m. Volunteers will get a free t-shirt, lunch, and either a free STRONG class (one class per hour of volunteering) or CREATE (co-working space) pass. Email them to sign up.
