This week, SimplexGrinnell decided to extend their month-long campaign by a week because they’ve seen such strong support helping their local United Ways. The Salt Lake office of SimplexGrinnell ramped up their efforts this year with a special emphasis on ensuring their employees knew that their donations will stay right in the surrounding communities. We appreciate the passion and strong testimonials of those running the campaign.
Last year, SimplexGrinnell employees raised over $150,000 for United Ways in the US and Canada with about half of those funds being directed to the United Way Youth Venture Initiative. This youth-led enterprise focuses on empowering kids to be change makers, regardless of their age.
United Way of Salt Lake and our partners indeed know the power of our youth.
We appreciate the enthusiasm and generosity local SimplexGrinnell employees showed this month—congratulations on your best campaign yet!
