SALT LAKE CITY — Flipping the calendar into December and the holiday season, finding ways to give and be a blessing to someone else is top of mind.
Right now, dozens of Utah companies are coming together to make Christmas happen with the goal of serving 10,000 families in the state.
Last year, KSL TV’s Karah Brackin talked with Paul Shin and his networking organization, Tacos Together, which helped a 5-year-old little boy in Utah battling cancer set a world record in building what was then the largest blanket fort.

This year, Shin got word that caught him offguard.
“For the first time in my married life, I had to sit down with my wife and say, ‘Look, I don’t think we can make Christmas happen this year… I got a notice I’d been sent to collections for a $1,100 phone bill that I had no idea existed,” Shin said.
