From offering diverse volunteer opportunities that enable individuals to make a difference, to providing avenues for donations that support our programs and clients, Catholic Community Services of Utah invites you to join us in executing our mission. 

Below, you’ll find CCS’ current, most pressing needs and the ways that you can get involved. 

{slider title="Food Donations Needed at Joyce Hansen Hall Food Bank" open="false"}

Through the operation of the Joyce Hansen Hall Food Bank, CCS strives to ensure that those experiencing hunger in the Ogden community have access to the food they need. 

Currently, the facility is experiencing an extreme shortage of food. Will you help us keep our shelves stocked? 

Donations can be dropped off at 2504 F Avenue in Ogden on weekdays from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm. Donations can also be made quickly and easily through our Amazon Wishlist. More information and high priority items can be found here. Feminine hygiene products are also a current donation need.

{slider Create a Dinner in a Bag for Joyce Hansen Hall Food Bank}

A Dinner in a Bag provides a meal for a family experiencing food insecurity. These bags can be easily distributed by counselors, social workers, and community center coordinators. 

A Dinner in a Bag kit can be created with one of the following three formulas: 

  • Spaghetti sauce (with meat), spaghetti noodles, canned veggie/fruit and a dessert mix 
  • Two Knorr side dish packets, canned chicken, canned fruit and a dessert mix 
  • 2 large cans of chili, a packet of corn bread and a dessert mix

Please remember to include desserts that only require water to be added. Items should be placed in a plastic grocery bag. Donations can be dropped off at 2504 F Avenue in Ogden on weekdays from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm. 

{slider Sneakers, Undergarments, and More Needed at Basic Needs Salt Lake}

CCS’ Basic Needs Salt Lake serves those in our community impacted by homelessness, as well as food and income insecurity. 

Currently, the facility is in need of towels, underwear, and sneakers for clients. Students of St. Vincent's Kitchen Academy are also in need of cake pans.

Donations can be made through our Amazon Wishlist, or dropped off at 437 W 200 S, Salt Lake City, UT on weekdays from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. More information can be found here. 

{slider Housing Donations Needed for Refugee Clients}

CCS' Refugee Resettlement team works hard to make sure that all clients settling into life in Utah have a place to call home. You can play a part by donating housing or renting to incoming refugee clients. If you're interested, please complete this form. Upon completion, someone from our housing team will be in touch should a need arise that your donation can remedy. 

The Refugee Resettlement team is also in need of household items to set up homes for newly arrived refugee families. Explore our Amazon Wishlist to view current high priority needs and donate. Learn more here.
