SALT LAKE CITY (KUTV) — Residents at the YWCA were made to feel especially sweet Saturday by a nonprofit organization and teenage volunteers putting together cupcake decorating kits and hand painting vases.
The cupcake decorating kits came with everything they needed to frost and decorate two cupcakes from a local bakery, as well as written instructions and a video demonstration.
Residents were also handed cards for the kits, according to the statement.
In two hours, youth, including young men, and Love Lake City Project organizers filled 80 kits and 80 bud vases.
Since the start of COVID-19, the YWCA had seen an increase in intakes, with some of the families having small children.
The press release stated, "Experiencing something as simple as decorating a cupcake will help them feel a sense of normalcy in a time that is in transition to rebuilding a life away from domestic violence."
"They will be extremely glad to receive these kits," Allie, Volunteer Coordinator at the YWCA, remarked during her presentation to the Volunteers.
The YWCA provides the most comprehensive family violence programs in Utah.
