Love Communications Honored As Outstanding Partner For Corporate Change By United Way Of Salt Lake
(April, 2006) — Love Communications was among eight organizations and individuals honored by the United Way of Salt Lake at its annual Compassionate Leaders Awards, held on April 26 at the Little America Hotel in downtown Salt Lake.
The agency was honored as “Outstanding Partner for Community Change,” an award recognizing “an exceptional individual, organization or foundation that has increased the amount of impact United Way of Salt Lake has on the community through an investment of time, resources, staff, financial investment, programs and other investments.”
In making the presentation, United Way of Salt Lake recognized its five-year partnership with Love Communications, led by the efforts of the agency’s president, Tom Love.
Since becoming the “agency of record” for United Way of Salt Lake in the fall of 2001, Love Communications has shared its expertise in marketing, advertising and public relations – both in terms of its paid services and its in-kind contributions to United Way of Salt Lake. Love Communications has donated an average of 500 hours a year (valued at approximately $50,000 in agency time) to United Way of Salt Lake on an in-kind basis.
And the agency’s efforts to champion United Way of Salt Lake don’t end there. As an individual, Tom Love spends between 10 to 15 hours a month on United Way of Salt Lake Board of Directors business and related commitments for United Way of Salt Lake. This is “above and beyond” the agency’s time. Endorsing United Way of Salt Lake’s mission extends throughout Love Communications’ ranks, and the agency’s creative, media and public relations departments regularly contribute through their time, talents and expertise.
“We’re humbled and truly proud of this exceptional honor from our friends at United Way,” Tom Love said. “To be acknowledged alongside such distinguished people and organizations in our community is a very gratifying experience indeed.”
