Food boxes, clothing sorted for Easter holiday by Salt Lake City Mission



The Salt Lake City Mission sponsored “Helping Saturday” that included putting together food boxes and sorting donated clothes for its upcoming Easter Food Box Giveaway.

“We are doing our best to help as many families as we can who are financially strapped this Easter,” said Pastor Joe Vazquez, executive director of the mission.

The mission helped more than 157,000 people last year and anticipates 2021 will be similar with continued food insecurity from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Items collected at the four-hour event included:

  • Turkey / Hams
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Yams
  • Canned vegetables
  • Dinner rolls
  • Pumpkin pies
  • Gravy packets
  • Stuffing (in boxes)
  • Other non-perishable food items.

Donations are still being accepted and can be dropped off at 1151 S. Redwood Rd., Suite 106 in Salt Lake City. Monetary donations can be made online by clicking here.
