The Holiday Giving Guide

As the holiday season approaches, our hearts swell with warmth and a desire to spread joy. At Catholic Community Services of Utah, we believe that this season is not just about festive decorations and celebrations; it's a time when the spirit of giving shines the brightest. 

In the spirit of compassion and community, we are thrilled to present "The Holiday Giving Guide." It is meant to serve as your go-to resource for discovering the myriad of ways you can make a meaningful impact during this special time of year. At CCS, we're dedicated to providing help and creating hope, and we invite you to join us in this endeavor. 

Here you'll find a treasure trove of opportunities to make a difference, touching the lives of those we serve through our three incredible departments: Basic Needs Ogden, Basic Needs Salt Lake, and Migration and Refugee Services. Each department offers unique ways to volunteer your time, talents, or resources, ensuring that you can give in a manner that resonates with your heart. 

Join us as we unwrap the true essence of the holidays through acts of kindness and generosity. Let's make this season brighter, one small act of love at a time.
