Petersen Inc.’s 2019 United Way Campaign
Back in 2016, Petersen Inc. finished its first ever United Way campaign and set a record at United Way of Northern Utah as the most successful first year campaign in the organization’s history. Petersen Inc. raised $26,000 for the community of Northern Utah in a little under three weeks. Over fifty percent of our team members participated in the workplace campaign, donating a portion of their paycheck to support less fortunate families and individuals in Northern Utah.
Each year since then our charitable team members have not only achieved each new campaign goal but exceeded- and this year is no exception. The goal for 2019 is to raise $40,000- doubling the goal from just three years ago. Employees can contact their supervisor to receive additional information on how to get involved and support the campaign.
Petersen Inc. has strong roots in the communities where we live and work and relies on three key values: take care of our employees and their families, take care of our customers, and give back to the communities that support us. “By doing these three things, we will be successful. We call this ‘The Petersen Way’ of doing business” Mark Jenkins, CEO of Petersen Inc. said. “Giving back to our community is part of our culture here at Petersen Inc.”
The United Way of Northern Utah CEO, Bob Hunter, said, “As a native of Farr West, I grew up with the Petersen family. I watched the integrity, perseverance, and hard work of Denis and Taunya Petersen, who started the company in the garage. And now the homegrown corporation provides hundreds of jobs for local residents and excellent products around the globe. We appreciate the incredible support of Petersen Inc. and all they do to support this community.”
