A big thanks to Swire Coca-Cola for a great 2011-2012 campaign!  We appreciate the participation of all their employees that contributed to making the employee workplace campaign as success!

We also appreciate Kurt Micka, Executive Director of Utah Partners for Health.  Kurt spoke to the Swire Coca-Cola employees and told the story of mobile medical clinic which offers medical care to members of the community who are under-insured or not insured at all .   We also heard from Sgt. Sweeten of the South Salt Lake Police Department.  He was invited to speak to the employees to describe that partnership between the City of South Salt Lake and United Way.  Both of these guest speakers did an excellent job!

Between guest speakers, several special events including a silent auction and basketball brackets, there was something for everyone.  Overall, the committee planning the campaign and all the employees successfully raised more than they did last year!

THANK YOU Swire Coca-Cola for matching employee donations and for being a part of our Cornerstone Partners program.  You help United Way change the odds for thousands of children and families in our community.  We couldn’t do this without you!
