The kids at the now year-round Midvale family shelter are feeling the heat just like the rest of us. And, like all kids, they want to go to the pool. That's why I, along with Midvale City Mayor Seghini are asking for donations so the kids can go swimming. Needs include: swim suits for kids 0-16 years old, baby and toddler swim diapers, hats, sunscreen, flip flops, and towels. We are accepting donations until July 22nd.
Thanks to our ongoing work to minimize homelessness in the county, the Midvale shelter is open in the summer for the first time this year. As part of the
collective impact on homelessness work, the state legislature allocated $9.2 million this year with the requirement that a portion of the funding go towards a year-round Midvale family shelter. Organizations involved in the effort rallied around the need for the year-round shelter and agreed on improvements to keep the shelter safe and operating in the summer months.
Mayor Seghini and I are accepting donations in our offices:
Salt Lake County Government Center - 2001 South State Street, North Building, 2nd Floor, Mayor's Office
Midvale City Hall - 7505 South Holden St.
Together we can help kids experiencing homelessness also experience the simple joys of being a kid - like jumping in a pool.
