This month on The Hub, we are excited to do a weekly feature on the honorees for the upcoming Celebration of Service event on Tuesday, May 20! This yearly event is when United Way of Salt Lake has the great privilege to honor outstanding individuals and organizations in our neighborhoods and communities. These people and organizations are truly making a difference, proving every day what it means to LIVE UNITED. We hope you will join us in celebration of their contributions at this fun and inspiring event (to RSVP and find out more info, click the link above).
This week, we are thrilled to announce our Corporate Partner of the Year: Workers Compensation Fund
Some organizations seem to stand out in the community. Not only do they provide great products or services, they are also actively involved in making Utah a better place to live. This award is United Way of Salt Lake’s highest tribute to a corporation that demonstrates strong community involvement through its support of United Way of Salt Lake.
Workers Compensation Fund continually goes above and beyond in its support of United Way of Salt Lake. The organization has embraced a year-round engagement strategy that includes: site visits, a successful workplace campaign, volunteer events, and recently, has been encouraging employees to participate in United Way’s advocacy efforts. Workers Compensation Fund made a significant investment in the Changing the Odds Campaign last year to help UWSL expand work in neighborhoods and schools. As a sponsor of both advertising and social media promotions, Workers Compensation Fund has also been vital in expanding United Way’s reach and visibility in the community. WCF employees, Greg Summerhays and Ray Pickup are heavily involved in our work both individually and with the organization. Greg and Ray both sit on the Board of Directors and provide a great example to other WCF employees, getting them involved with UWSL’s mission and goals. Additionally, WCF invests $75,000 annually as a cornerstone gift, which goes directly to the cost of doing business.
Because of its example and commitment to our community, United Way of Salt Lake is pleased to recognize Workers Compensation Fund as our 2014 Corporate Partner of the Year.
