Utah Food Bank’s Summer Food and Fund Drive

Penna Powers recently participated in Utah Food Bank’s Summer Food and Fund Drive and we’re pretty proud of our employee participation.

We like a little competition here at P2—naturally—so we created a contest to finally determine whether U of U or BYU is the best school ever.

Employees could bring in cans of food or donate to a virtual store. While the Cougars showed a promising start, the Utes ultimately came out victorious. The third barrel representing other darn good schools also had a nice showing.

P2 Utah Food Bank’s Summer Food and Fund Drive Results:

U of U raised $330 in virtual donations and 37 items donated.

BYU raised $194 in virtual donations with 34 items donated.

Other darn good schools raised $94 in virtual donations with 33 items donated.

Overall, P2 employees donated $618 and 86 pounds of food. The agency matched $500 of donations to bring the grand total up to $1,118.

For every $1 donated to Utah Food Bank, the organization receives $7.81 in goods and services. That means our $1,118 donation from the Summer Food and Fund Drive actually provided $8,731.58 in goods and services to the local community. Way to go P2!
