SALT LAKE CITY -- People with intellectual disabilities like autism and traumatic brain injuries are often overlooked during the holidays, especially as they get old enough that their parents are no longer caring for them.

UAID organizes a holiday gift box giveaway every year, looking for donors and volunteers to make sure they get a gift on Christmas.

Volunteers can pick up ornaments at their location at the old Mancuso's religious gifts store on 1816 South State Street in Salt Lake City, or they can call 801-970-1930 or 801-654-8449. Their website is
