Utah Blaze Announce “Coats for the Cold” Holiday Charity

This holiday season, the Utah Blaze will once again be teaming up with sponsors to help donate to the less fortunate through its second annual “Coats for the Cold” charity. With the help of Costa Vida and Chick-fil-A restaurants, as well as Arrow Moving & Storage and Meadowbrook Station Apartments, the Blaze will gather coats, clothing and other donated items in an effort to make a significant contribution to The Road Home Shelter.
Donation bins will be in place at several Utah Blaze sponsor locations around the Salt Lake area from Monday, November 5th until Saturday, December 15th. The Blaze will then gather all of the donated items and deliver them to The Road Home Shelter during its 18th annual Holiday Radio-a-Thon on Thursday, December 20th.
The Radio-a-Thon is held each year to raise awareness of the homeless in our community and increase funding. Local radio stations will be broadcasting live from The Road Home Shelter while participating in a friendly competition to see who can raise the most money. Listeners are also invited to bring in-kind donations to the shelter. Head Coach Ron James will be in attendance, along with Utah Blaze players, dancers, and mascot Torch.
“The holidays are a time for giving and I’m thrilled that the Utah Blaze will once again have the opportunity to help make our community a better place,” said Head Coach Ron James. “Our ‘Coats for the Cold’ campaign was very successful last season and I’m looking forward to even better results this year. Of course, none of this would be possible without the help of our sponsors. We thank them for their generous support.”
The Road Home began in 1923 as Travelers' Aid Society, operating out of a local bus depot and providing assistance to stranded travelers and other disconnected persons. In 2001, they changed their name to The Road Home to better reflect their mission. The Road Home has since grown to become the state's largest homeless shelter.
If you would like to donate to The Road Home Shelter, please visit any of our sponsorship donation locations between Monday, November 5th and Saturday, December 15th!
