For more than 30 years, Sorenson BioScience has specialized in making quality scientific research products used in scientific labs across the globe. More recently, however, they’re making a difference in our community — and in a big way, too!

This year’s campaign marked Sorenson’s first time participating and partnering with United Way of Salt Lake for its charitable giving. Though they may be rookies, ask any of Sorenson’s 220 employees, and they will be able to tell you what it means to LIVE UNITED. Chris Ek, an EHS and Lean Technician at Sorenson BioScience said, “We had a great time and the phrases ‘do it for the kids’ and ‘help someone in greater need than yourself’ were heard frequently and truly heartfelt by the group. We look forward to continuing our campaign throughout the year and have plans to promote future volunteer opportunities.”

To spice things up, Sorenson’s management team agreed to a challenge given them by Sorenson employees. The challenge was simple — the member of the management team who raised the most pledges in their name would have to dress up in a costume of the employee’s collective choice and wear that costume throughout the work day on Halloween — even if important meetings were on the docket. The lucky winners of that competition were none other than, Sorenson BioScience’s C.E.O West Price, and his trusty side-kick, Bill Brown.IMG_0529

A Batman and Robin themed costume seems very appropriate for this company. Even though employees aren’t out in the streets fighting crime in Salt Lake City, their support for United Way of Salt Lake, and their enthusiasm for the campaign, makes them superheroes in our book.

Thank you Sorenson BioScience for giving your employees the power to help change the odds! Thank you for being great examples of what it means to LIVE UNITED.
