In a labor of love, The Road Home's winter overflow shelter got an extreme makeover, complete with lilac-painted walls and lots of helping hands.
As part of an annual service project, about 130 students and faculty from the University of Utah's Master of Accounting program showed up early Wednesday to restore the shelter in preparation for winter.
The home has accommodated up to 300 people in the past, offering families a place to sleep, eat and bathe.
Whether enjoying the arches in Grand County, boating the turquoise waters of Bear Lake in Rich County, exploring the sandstone kingdoms of Washington County or skiing the powdery slopes of Summit County, tourists visited every county in Utah in 2013. Those visits propelled economic activity, according to research recently published by the Bureau of Economic and Business Research, or BEBR, at the University of Utah’s David Eccles School of Business.
