Speaking on Business: Zions Community Service — UT
Zions Bank embraces being involved in our community, supporting service projects throughout the year.
This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.
As a state, we value helping others and lending a hand, so it’s not surprising Utah is named as the top state for volunteerism in the United States. As a community bank, this is also a value Zions Bank embraces, by being involved in our community, supporting service projects during the year.
This includes doing events like National Teach Children to Save Day, which teaches better financial management at a younger age. The bank also supports and leads events every year like the Heart Walk, for the American Heart Association, and is consistently recognized for our outreach with the military.
Every summer, Zions Bank employees participate in the annual Paint-a-Thon service project, where employees spend a week painting and beautifying homes for seniors, disabled and veteran neighbors who can’t do the work themselves. Now in its 27th year, this bank wide event has helped hundreds of homeowners throughout Utah and Idaho.
Zions Bank is also involved with the annual United Way Day of Caring event. Bank volunteers participate in projects like beautifying the Meadowbrook Natural Area in Salt Lake City, reading to local elementary students in St. George and assisting with a kitchen renovation and yard maintenance for a nonprofit for runaway and homeless youth in Ogden.
For our extensive efforts within the community, Zions Bank received a Best of State Award for Community Development.
For Zions Bank, I’m Chris Redgrave, speaking on business.
