Hser Ner Moo, Project Coordinator
The Hser Ner Moo Community & Welcome Center was very honored with the visit of Allen Alexander, the CEO of Savage, along with the Executive General Counsel. Hser Ner Moo often receives visits from dignitaries of companies and organizations who want to tour the Center, but Mr. Alexander’s visit was unique. He and his colleague came as part of their organization’s daily tutoring services to Hser Ner Moo students.
Since the start of the afterschool program this year, Savage has been consistently sending two of their employees everyday to Hser Ner Moo to run an academic-based enrichment activity for students who have no homework. This was made possible through the Center’s partnership with United Way of Salt Lake. Savage is one of the many organizations who have toured the Hser Ner Moo Center and their employees decided to become more involved in bringing change to the community. Serving in the center’s afterschool program seemed to be a great fit to many Savage’s employees. They all take turns to come to South Salt Lake, where the Hser Ner Moo Center is located, and donate their time to enrich the lives of the Center’s elementary school kids.
Mr. Alexander and his colleague provided an engaging science activity with the kids. They grew crystals in the shape of snowflakes that deeply captivated this young audience. Hser Ner Moo Community and Welcome Center strongly values this kind of partnership where the passion for changing the odds is made visible even from the CEO of a company.
Thank you Savage, for LIVING UNITED!!
