SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4NEWS) Actor Kevin Bacon slipped away from the Sundance Film Festival to visit the homeless in Salt Lake City.

Bacon visited the Rescue Mission of Salt Lake Monday night – meeting with the men and women who benefit from the work being done there. The shelter focuses on emergency services and recovery from addictions. In addition to meeting people, Sackcloth & Ashes donated and dropped off 150 blankets to the shelter.

Bacon has a charity that helps people by donating money or raising money for local grassroots charities in the United States.
