commUNITY: support is everything!

I am a firm believer that we, as a commUNITY, can always do more.

In the spirit of doing more and celebrating kindness, this month at Leather Happy Hour SLC we will be collecting Urgent Needs and In-Kind Donations for our homeless friends at The Road Home shelter.

The Road Home is happy to accept donations of gently used items. They do ask that all donations be clean and in good condition when they are donated. Please bring your donation with you to Leather Happy Hour SLC, if you feel so inclined. I’ll have a collection box there.

What they need right now – pillows, towels, coats, jeans, warm clothing, boots & shoes (all sizes), socks, underwear, baby food and diapers (sizes 3-5).
Pro tip: you can shop at your local dollar store for a lot of these items.

I also wish to bring awareness and the attention of my fellow commUNITY members to the following important and worthy causes. With so much going on in this crazy world today, support is everything.
