SALT LAKE CITY - June 17, 2019 - PRLog -- Stagg Design is kicking off their annual room makeover project this week at the home of a family who relocated to Salt Lake City from a Nepali refugee camp after fleeing Bhutan.   Utah is home to over 60,000 refugee families who have fled war torn countries seeking a better and safer life for their families and usually arriving here with little money and the clothes on their back. With so many of these families in need, it makes it even more important for the community to come together to help them transition to their new life. As this family has been adjusting, they have had to endure even more adversity with their young son who suffers from severe disabilities, autism, cerebral palsy and other health issues. Under the direction of Jennifer Stagg, owner of Stagg Design and volunteers, they have been concentrating their combined efforts on transforming main living areas and other common areas to make them more comfortable, useful, and aesthetically pleasing for the family.

The home makeover is the idea of Jennifer Stagg who, as a successful business owner and nationally recognized DIY expert, continually feels the desire to "pay it forward."  Stagg says, "I know the impact a well-designed home can have on anyone—especially a family who desperately needs the help.  We hope this changes their daily lives."

On Thursday, June 20th, at 10:30 A.M., an unveiling and ribbon cutting ceremony will be conducted by Jennifer Stagg and Mayor Jenny Wilson who will share brief remarks about the project.

Goods and money donated by Stagg Design, Intellibed who provided new mattresses, Walker Edison who donated new furnishings, Denise Sanchez of Homewerks in San Antonio who gave the family with their first washer and dryer, Benjamin Moore Paint of Salt Lake City, Former NFL player Merril Hoge who provided a specialty bed need for the young boy, and so many others.
