Zions employees worked to make a difference in their communities this fall during the 24th annual United Way Day of Caring. Bank volunteers worked on a variety of service projects in Pocatello, Twin Falls and Boise, Idaho, as well as Salt Lake City, Logan, Ogden, Orem and St. George, Utah. Area coordinators and team captains who helped make this year’s projects a success were Doug Kohler, Bridget Julian, Erick Salazar, Nathan Oliphant, Brandon Toyn, Judy Burton, Rosemary Huish, Donna Mitchell, Chris Bang, Sarah Thompson, Jacqueline Hickman and Odette Sutton.

“It’s great to see Zions employees come together for a common good,” said Hannah Williams, Zions United Way Day coordinator. “Thank you to everyone who took the time to volunteer their time and talents.”
