Local Employee Efforts
United Way Day of Caring
Volunteers from Nu Skin and other local businesses gathered to give meaningful service to the surrounding community for the annual United Way Day of Caring. Nu Skin’s volunteers spent the morning at Kids on the Move in Orem. While there, the volunteers weeded the gardens, cleaned the windows and mended a fence. Nu Skin employees had a great time working together and the Kids on the Move grounds looked great because of their efforts. Giving back to the community is central to Nu Skin’s mission of being a “force for good throughout the world”. Employees are encouraged to continue to give back to their communities anyway they can. Kids on the Move is an organization committed to supporting development of children with disabilities, delays, autism and low-income families. They help prepare children for school, empower parents with skills to promote their child’s development and help children with social and communication issues.
Provo Food and Care Coalition
The Food & Care Coalition serves nutritionally well balanced meals 7 days a week to Utah County's homeless, mentally ill and learning disabled, fixed income families, and families affected by tragedy. In 2008, community members contributed canned goods, garden produce, sack lunches, casseroles, desserts, food from catered events, cash and redeemable grocery store gift certificates, paving the way for the program to serve 101,281 meals to our fellow community members.
This remarkable accomplishment would not be possible unless it had vested community interest. Area businesses, church groups, civic groups, scouts, individuals and families donate nearly 15,000 volunteer hours each year. In addition to preparation, serving, and cleanup duties, volunteers often recruit food donors and make frequent donation pickups. (http://www.foodandcare.org/services/meals.php)
Nu Skin employees are please to contribute to this great community service. Each Wednesday, several employees donate their lunch hour to serve and assist in this cause.
Force for Good Day
Nu Skin corporate headquarters came together for another great Nu Skin Force for Good Day with employees and their family members participating in creating kits filled with books, snacks, colored pencils, scissors and more.
