Morinda Donates to Multiple Local Organizations in Celebration of 20th Anniversary
PLATINUM ANNIVERSARY SERVICE CELEBRATION FOCUSED ON BENEFITTING THE COMMUNITY
AMERICAN FORK, Utah-1 August 2016-In celebration of the company's 20th Anniversary, Morinda held a multi-faceted service project that involved their entire corporate staff. The service project had an excellent turn-out and resulted in hundreds of donations to the Utah Community Action Food Bank, the Boys and Girls Club of Utah County and Kids on the Move.
"It is impossible to count how many millions of dollars Morinda has given back to the community here in Utah County specifically, but also to the community of Tahiti and to the community of countries all over the world," said Jon Hallstrom, Morinda's Senior Director of Sales. "We're proud to continue the tradition that Morinda has created over the last 20 years and do something to give back to other people."
The first organization that benefitted from Morinda's service celebration was the Utah Community Action Food Bank. This organization is a non-profit organization that assists impoverished populations around Utah Valley. Collectively, Morinda was able to donate more than 500 pounds of food.
"Everything we do at Community Action is centered around fostering self-reliance in individuals, families, and the community," said Grace Thomas, Communications Director for Community Action. "We have a 2 step approach to ending local poverty-- first stabilize the immediate need and second help rebuild through education, resources, and a support system. Food drives like this one are critical to our success as we help those in need meet the very basic needs. We can't do what we do without the generous community members."
The second beneficiary organization was Kids on the Move. This organization provides services to children with special needs and their families. They focus on children with developmental delays, autistic spectrum disorders and low-income families. Morinda was able to provide nearly 200 sensory exploration kits to Kids on the Move.
"Morinda reached out to Kids on the Move at just the right time," said Scott Bean, CEO of Kids on the Move. "We are so grateful for Morinda's involvement in these children's developmental success. Morinda's engagement in the special needs community will have a lasting impact for years to come."
The last organization that Morinda focused on was the Boys & Girls Club of Utah County. The Boys & Girls Club of America is a national organization focused on enabled young people to realize their full potential as productive and responsible citizens and leaders. Morinda provided 500 school supply kits and additional craft supplies to support the underprivileged youth of Utah County.
"As school approaches many kids grow anxious about not having the long list supplies needed to start classes" explains David Bayles, Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Utah County. "We appreciate great community partners like Morinda who spend time and money to assemble wonderful back-to-school kits for children in need."
This service celebration was reflective of Morinda's commitment to giving back and making the world a better place. Other aspects of the company's 20th Anniversary festivities include a sweepstakes with prizes ranging from free shipping and Morinda gear to a Tahiti trip and $20,000. They will also continue to offer 20th Anniversary commemorative items throughout the remainder of the year.
