SWCA is committed to volunteering in the communities we live, work, and play in.
To increase the impact our teams make in their local communities, we launched the SWCA Gives Back challenge, “Spring into Action” in early 2019.
In just two and half months, SWCA accumulated 1,574 hours of volunteer work, surpassing the total amount of volunteer hours in 2018. Some of those activities included park and river clean-ups, Earth Day events, and collecting and donating goods such as books and clothes.
The winning subregion was the Great Basin/NW, which includes our Salt Lake City and Portland offices. As a part of winning, they made a $500 donation to a non-profit charity of their choosing.
