Christmas Box International
The Christmas Box International partners with communities and groups to prevent child abuse and to improve the quality of life for children who have been abused, neglected, or are facing homelessness. They truly believe that every child deserves a childhood.
In 1996, founder and New York Times best-selling author Richard Paul Evans created a safe place for Utah’s children, naming the charity after his first novel, The Christmas Box.
The Christmas Box Houses are short-term emergency children’s shelters located in Salt Lake City, Ogden, and Moab. These Houses offer shelter, food, clothing, on-site therapy, medical and dental evaluations, and recreational activities. From providing a Christmas morning to pairing mentors with teens aging out of foster care, their programs serve more than 7,500 at-risk children, teens, and young adults annually.

SelectHealth recognizes the crucial resources provided by the Christmas Box International as another example of how Utah Gives Back.
