Families of immigration detainees to get help

HYDE PARK — A benefit today will help the families of those arrested in this month's immigration raid at the Swift & Co. plant in Hyrum.
The food sale, garage sale and live auction starts at 4 p.m. at the St. Thomas Aquinas Church, 250 E. 795 South in Hyde Park.
While basic needs such as food and clothing are being met, ACELA member Rolando Murillo says there is a need for cash to pay rent, bills, and other expenses, along with family reunification.
Organizers are seeking donations of new or nearly new items to be sold or auctioned. Cash donations can be made under the name "Help to the Families of Those Detained at EA Miller" at Wells Fargo, account number 2016704831.
