Light One Candle – Thank you!

| Montessori Admin | ,

Dear Mary,

I’m writing to thank you for your participation as a sponsor during our annual Light One Candle holiday gift drive. With your support, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) in Salt Lake City facilitated the delivery of over $70,000 worth of much needed household supplies and other gifts to 107 recently arrived refugee families, totaling over 350 people served. We are overwhelmed by your generosity and your continued support of refugees. Thank you for standing with refugees and showing how welcoming Utah can be.

The attached PDF will act as your tax receipt. Please retain this form for your records. Values listed on the donation receipt are assigned by the donor, as we cannot provide valuation for in-kind donations. The IRC takes no responsibility in the valuation of donated goods. You should attach original receipts or copies of receipts to this donation receipt when filing your taxes.

If you would like to learn more about our work and other ways to get involved throughout the year, please visit Sponsors will be able to sign up for our 2022 Light One Candle gift drive starting in November 2022.

Thank you, again, for taking on the responsibility of sponsoring a refugee family or individual during Light One Candle. I am sincerely grateful for your efforts to make refugees welcome in our community!
