Nearly 300 Zions employees assembled to serve their communities in Utah and Idaho during United Way’s 26th annual Day of Caring event in September.

Service projects took place at community centers, schools and local nonprofits. Volunteers were enthusiastic about the opportunity to strengthen their communities.

“I love how the United Day Way of Caring rallies our entire company to support our communities,” says Jamie Peterson, one of the bank’s United Way Day of Caring coordinators. “There’s always a lot of excitement around each regional project, which demonstrates that we work for a great company with great employees.”
