Access Donates Over Two Tons of Food to Utah's Needy

The Access Food Drive has been an annual tradition for over 15 years. Every year we split our staff into teams, with a simple assignment: acquire and donate as many non-perishable food items as possible. The winning teams gets a nice little prize, while the Utah Food Bank receives a load of food to help out needy Utahns this winter.

Access being an active and competitive company, things get out of hand - in a good way. This year the company collected a record high: over 4400 pounds! That's two tons for the needy in our state, of which there are more than we know about. Nearly 1000 of those pounds came from TriQuest Fundraising (pictured), who win movie passes for their efforts.

We're very proud to be a part of the Salt Lake community and try to do what we can to help out. Thanks to all the Access employees, friends and family who contributed time and money to the effort.
