More than 800 employees participated in the company-sponsored month of

Ginette Bott, Chief Marketing Officer at the Utah Food Bank, said, "Utah Food
Bank is so excited at this year's US Synthetic success.Previous years have
provided much needed food, but this year's overwhelming contribution of cash
will provide over 65,000 meals."

"US Synthetic brought more than 400 volunteers―the largest group of volunteers
in the history of United Way's Day of Caring," said Bill Hulterstrom,
president and CEO at United Way of Utah County. "This speaks volumes to the
type of commitment and leadership that US Synthetic has in advancing the
common good of our community."

Every year, multiple times a year, US Synthetic comes together as a company to
raise money and donate service in the community. This unique culture of
service is one of the ways US Synthetic works on its over-arching goal of
improving lives.

"We are so proud of our employees and the hard work they do and the concern
they have for each other and those within our community," said Rob Galloway,
CEO at US Synthetic. "Our goal of improving lives is a key component to the
success of our company. We're not only focused on improving the lives of our
employees and our customers, but we're also dedicated to improving the lives
of those in need within our community. We hope other Utah companies will
accept the challenge to donate to the Utah Food Bank, the United Way, and
other charitable organizations this holiday season."
