Ogden, Utah, June 1, 2012
Visitors to Bank of Utah's four locations in the Salt Lake area, might do a double take when they see fully decked-out Christmas trees in the banks' foyers in June.
The locally-owned and operated community bank is asking folks to put diapers and other baby needs under the tree June 4 - 29, in support of the Salt Lake Board of Realtors'
Christmas in July project.
The effort will help The Road Home provide for troubled families along the Wasatch Front that are in transition from homelessness. Bank of Utah is collecting new diaper bags,
infant and toddler hair bows, socks, diapers of all sizes, baby wipes, "how to" books for moms, newborn onesies, T-shirts sized 6 to 18 months, infant pacifier clips and small
baby toys that would fit in a back pack.
"We're very pleased to partner with the Salt Lake Board of Realtors on their annual Christmas in July project," said Scott Parkinson, Bank of Utah senior vice president of
marketing and communications. "And, I can't think of anything more important than providing essentials for the babies and toddlers of families without homes."
The public is welcome to drop off donations Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.at the following Bank of Utah locations:
Downtown Salt Lake Branch
711 South State Street
Salt Lake City, UT 84111
