Walker Edison’s number one core value is “WE Give”, and it that was at the heart of this Grand Opening celebration. Directly following the ribbon cutting ceremony, we were able to participate in a Make-A-Wish Proclamation for 4-yr-old Wish Kid, Hannah. The CEO of Make-A-Wish Utah, Jared Perry, introduced Hannah and her family and then brought out a special surprise. Hannah loves Mario and so we were able to bring Mario and his friends as well as princesses to create a special moment for Hannah and to read her wish proclamation. Her wish to have a bedroom makeover was coming true! Hannah was so excited, and we were grateful to have her and her family as VIPs and honored guests for our entire Grand Opening event.
We also chose the Jordan Education Foundation as our charity partner for the event. This foundation helps students and their families in the Jordan School District. As part of this partnership, we offered $15 food truck vouchers for all monetary donations as well as hygiene item donations. In addition, we donated all sales from walkeredisonshop.com and our warehouse sale. In total, we donated $32,770 and hundreds of hygiene items.
