There's something to be said about those who lead by example. On Sept. 24, nine CHG executives rolled up their sleeves and lived our principle core value of Putting People First, distributing food to local families in need.
CHG's longstanding partnership with United Way provides our people with opportunities to serve within the community. One such opportunity is through Utah Food Bank's Mobile Pantry, where fresh and staple foods are distributed to community members who would otherwise go without.
"The Mobile Food Pantry is a need that's truly valued in our community," says Tyra Pounds, event organizer and cultural enhancement specialist on the talent management team. "Some people in the community arrive more than two hours early to secure their place in line." It's a good thing they do. Due to high turnout, they almost always run out of food before the two-hour session ends.
When the Mobile Food Pantry arrived at Central Park, one of United Way's community centers in Salt Lake City, Utah, our volunteers got busy unloading food and organizing it. Over the next two hours, they distributed food to 136 families and made a lasting impression.
"CHG's generous support helped change the odds for individuals and families in our community," says James Brown, community investment advisor at United Way.
