Axiom Financial collected more than 3,000 pounds of food for the Utah Food Bank during a special food drive. The food was collected over the last few weeks at office locations throughout the state, with generous donations from employees, clients, business partners and others.
To celebrate, the company hosted an exclusive movie premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire at six locations, including Centerville, Sandy, South Jordan, Lehi, Orem and St. George. Employees and guests were thrilled to enjoy the second edition of The Hunger Games on the evening of Nov. 20, two days before the official release date. Attendees also won several movie-related gifts through random drawings and a character costume contest held before the movie at each theater.
“We are always looking for ways to give back to the community,” says Melissa Wright, president of Axiom Financial. “By running a food drive for the Utah Food Bank, we knew we would help so many local families at this important time of the year. In addition to our employees, our amazing clients, business associates, and many friends also got involved.”
The food drive was extended through the end of this week, as donations continued to come in the doors. “This was a fun activity for everyone involved. We very much appreciate all those who participated,” Melissa said. “I want to thank everyone who stepped up to help.”
