Hexcel’s United Way of Salt Lake campaign has come to an end for 2015. We exceeded our goal again this year, and, as in previous years, Hexcel matched all funds that employees raised! We had a lot of fun while raising money for a good cause.

IMG_7635Our theme was “Marvel May for United Way.” We had life size cut-outs of “Avengers” action heroes, which we raffled off. Every year we do a Hot-Dog-a-Palooza where we grill up and sell hundreds of hotdogs and bratwursts, with all proceeds going to United Way. Everyone loves this fun tradition, and we doubled the money that we raised from last year. To tie it all together, the campaign concluded with a 5K fun run/walk on the Jordan River Parkway. It was a beautiful end to a bit rainy campaign!

We know that we can make a tremendous impact on the schools in our area, and that even the small donations make a difference. These monthly payroll contributions make it possible to help UWSL do important Collective Impact work in our Community so that kids and families succeed in school and in life.

Thank you to all of the Hexcel volunteers that put in so much time and effort into making our UWSL campaign a success and for LIVING UNITED!
