THRIVE Center for Survivors of Torture's volunteer program is an integral part of our mission. Through the help of dedicated volunteers, we are able to help clients become self-sufficient and rebuild their lives in Utah. There are many ways you can help out.

  • Hygiene supplies: We're always in need of a number of hygiene items to give to clients in need. These include shampoo, conditioner, lotion, deodorant, soap, diapers, baby wipes, toothpaste, toothbrushes, toilet paper, feminine hygiene products, razors and shaving cream. 
  • Cleaning supplies: Having cleaning supplies available helps our clients, who usually live at or below the poverty line. We're always in need of liquid laundry detergent, dish soap, hand soap, multi-purpose wipes or sprays, paper towels, sponges and dish towels. 

Note: All donations must be new or like-new, unopened, and in their original package. We are unable to accept opened, soiled, or partially used items.
