On November 5, 2012, Ultradent launched its annual food drive with a theme of “Hunger Games”. The kick-off event consisted of team challenges led by Ultradent’s Upper Management towards their goal of 100,000 pounds of food. The two week long food drive resulted in an astounding collection of over 200,000 pounds of food!
Ultradent Products, Inc. is a dental products manufacturer in South Jordan, Utah. Employees have raised money and collected canned goods for the Utah Food Bank for the past 10 years with a participation consisting of 700-900 employees each year. “Last year”, said Dr. Dan Fischer, President/CEO of Ultradent, “Employees generously donated 83,010 pounds of food so it seemed like a reasonable challenge to set this year’s goal at 100,000 pounds. I could hardly contain my excitement and pride when I heard the collection amount totaled 208,169 pounds! I feel privileged to work with such amazing and generous individuals.”
Ultradent donated $25,000 cash (101,287 pounds) to the Utah Food Bank in a check presentation on November 27, 2012. The balance of $26,784.45 cash was donated to AmeriCares for the victims of the Sandy Hurricane.
