Make-A-Wish Utah welcomed wish families to a Mario Kart themed drive-through Trick-or-Treat. We were so grateful to be a part of such an incredible event!
We had a great team of employees volunteer to setup the ultimate Rainbow Road stop. We even had a colorful shoot to hand out candy at a distance. Everything was COVID safe, with Make-a-Wish Utah provide the candy that had been quarantined and pre-bagged, in addition to all participants staying in their cars with their bags hanging on their side mirrors.
It was so amazing to see how happy the kids and families were and to see all the amazing costumes and other community partner's setups along the Mario Kart "course".
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, so we wanted to give back to causes to help with breast cancer research as well as helping current patients and survivors.
Each week since we have been working from home during this global pandemic we have been sending our employees care packages. It helps us all feel connected and also allows us to be able to support local and small businesses. We love being able to find new companies to support during this crazy time!
Included in each package this week was:
• MoonandJuneCo bags, 20% of the purchase was donated to Susan G Komen
• $2 from each Swig sticker and $1 from each Swig drink card was donated to their Save the Cups fundraiser this month to help women in Utah that are fighting breast cancer pay for life-saving procedures
• RubySnap Fresh Cookies breast cancer awareness cookies – Ruby Snap is a local business that continues to give back to local hospitals and patients in addition to donating to entities such as IHC and Susan G Komen.
In addition, this month 10% of all sales on www.walkeredisonshop.com will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation 💗
Giving back to the community is a core value here at Walker Edison. With our employees working from home, we have had to get a little creative with our company-wide service projects while being virtual.
Employees signed up to tie fleece blankets using material we provided, and together we donated over 400 blankets to Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake.
We loved seeing all the photos come in of employees making blankets. It’s incredible what we can do when we all come together, even while staying physically apart!
