We are excited to do a weekly feature on the honorees for the upcoming Celebration of Service Event, coming up on May 27! At this annual event, 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. The honorees of the 2015 Celebration of Service awards are committed to working with United Way of Salt Lake to solve our communities’ toughest challenges. They engage their will, passion, expertise, and resources to improve lives and build a stronger community for us all.
This week, we are thrilled to announce Corporate Partner of the Year: Orbital ATK
Some organizations seem to stand out in the community. Not only do they provide great products or services, but 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 community involvement through its support of United Way of Salt Lake.
At Orbital ATK, philanthropy, giving, and volunteering are solidly built into the corporate culture. Since 1986, this strategic partner has contributed significantly to United Way of Salt Lake through employee fundraising campaigns, event sponsorships, and volunteer hours. Orbital ATK’s leadership has made it a priority to educate employees about the importance of its partnership with United Way of Salt Lake and to help build better communities for people to live and work. To ensure this message resonates throughout the company, presentations and targeted communications reach all employees. Providing employees with opportunities to give and get involved are just two of the many ways Orbital ATK demonstrates its commitment. Through its annual United Way employee campaign, Orbital ATK has raised more than $150,000 each year, and last year they raised more than $175,000.
