Photos: Interfaith initiative spreads cheer among seniors, refugees, homeless

Move over, Santa. Members of Utah's Jewish and Muslim communities demonstrated on Monday that the spirit of helping those facing a difficult time transcends any one religion. Under guidance from the National Council of Jewish Women, volunteers packaged and delivered boxes of fresh fruit, baked treats and other donated goodies to homebound seniors, refugee families and several who were homeless this Christmas. They have led similar projects for 25 years. Above, Nicole Baugh tapes boxes while volunteering at the Shalom Salaam Tikkun Olam event Monday at West High School in Salt Lake City.
