2018 Annual Eccles Broadcast Center Food and Clothing Drive

Press Release

Friday, December 14, 2018 - 7:30 a.m. - 6 p.m.

KUED, KUER, and KUEN are again joining together for the Annual Eccles Broadcast Center Food and Clothing Drive on Friday, December 14 from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

All food and clothing collected will be delivered to the Crossroads Urban Center for distribution to families in need this holiday season. Crossroads is asking for frozen turkeys, hams, and other non-perishable food items. Clothing donations can include clean, warm, and gently used men’s, women’s, and children’s apparel. Blankets are also being collected. Monetary donations are welcome and are tax deductible. Make checks payable to Crossroads Urban Center.

“We at the Eccles Broadcast Center look forward to this drive each year,” says KUED Community Engagement Coordinator Laura Durham. “We love seeing our community show up year after year with such generous donations. It energizes our volunteers who stand out in the cold to help collect food and clothing from the cars that come through our parking lot, and I’m always heartened by those who return with even more to give.”

The Eccles Broadcast Center is located on the University of Utah campus at 101 Wasatch Drive. Employees will be under a tent in the building's north parking lot ready to unload and assist with donations, so it won't be necessary to park or get out of the car.
