When you select YWCA Utah as your thank you gift, part of your donation will go towards providing household essentials for families in need. Household essentials can include pillows, blankets, shower curtains, soap, towels, laundry bags, garbage cans, mops, buckets, cleaning supplies, toasters, pots, pans, silverware and sheets.

Governor Gary Herbert says he hopes Utahns will increase their donations to the Pamela Atkinson Homeless Trust Fund when filing their Utah State Tax return. He spoke at an event promoting the fund Thursday at the YWCA Center for Families. He says a 50 percent increase from 2 dollars to 3 is not too much to ask in a state that leads the nation in charity and volunteerism.

Pamela Atkinson talked about a young family she met Wednesday night at the St. Vincent DePaul Soap Kitchen.  She says, despite their struggles, she could clearly see they had already accomplished a lot.
