Employees Giving Back

Stories

Every year, thousands of employees in Northern Utah get involved in workplace giving campaigns to support local United Way solutions that improve education, financial stability and health.

The United Way workplace campaign unite employees in all offices or branches of a company, and gives them an opportunity to donate, volunteer and speak out for causes that matter to them. They can see the results in their own backyard, as they are part of a larger mission to affect change in Northern Utah.  The workforce campaign is about more than raising money for worthy causes; it also strengthens connections between employees and their community.

In Ogden, United Way and Ogden City brought together hundreds of volunteers to clean up 28  houses in East Central Ogden as part of the national United Way Day of Caring Project. Employees from Wells Fargo, Zions Bank, WEX, Weber State University, CitiGroup, Ogden Clinic, Ameritech College of Healthcare, Chromalox, EnableUtah, Intermountain Healthcare, Marketstar, Revere Health and Select Health came together to be a good neighbor and make a big impact to inspire others to volunteer in their community to create change.

We consider Post Consumer Brand a superpower in Tremonton.  Post is a trusted name to families, and when we are asking to feed someone’s child, who better to turn to than America’s most popular cereal brand, Post?  Earlier this month, Post held their annual United Way Cereal Sale.  It was a HUGE success!  Post sold more than 17,000 bags/boxes of cereal with all the proceeds going to the United Way of Northern Utah.  Families lined up at 7pm Friday night for the doors to open at 7a.m. Saturday morning. Post sold out in less than 3 hours!  People of all ages came together to support those in need, enjoying the event and hugs from Sugar Bear! (The oldest was 97!)

 

Thanks to our trusted corporate partners and all that volunteered!  Not only does volunteering strengthen the connection between employees and their community, studies have shown that volunteering can also help protect mental and physical health.  Interested in learning more?
