Eccles Theater has partnered with Volunteers of America UTAH to collect coats and other warm winter items for adults in need, to share with out community the spirit of our 2022 holiday art installation “Warm Embrace” by local artist Lenka Konopasek.

We encourage you to bring clean, gently-used, adult clothing donations when you come to Eccles Theater this winter. Donations can be dropped off during daytime business hours or before performances through mid-January.
