Two Utah County Nonprofits Win Charity Voting Contest

By Benjamin Tateoka After 60 days of voting and with more than 31,000 votes cast, Primary Children’s Hospital, Kids On The Move and The Family Support and Treatment Center, received first place in Utah Community Credit Union’s Charity Voting contest.

As part of the UCCU’s 60th Anniversary Celebration, $30,000 was donated to the top three finishers in the Charity Voting contest.

“The community response to our 60th anniversary charity giveback voting campaign was amazing,” said Brad Norton, SVP Marketing for UCCU. “The voting results for first place were so close that we decided to award each of the top three charities with first place honors and a $10,000 donation.”

The community was invited to vote for their favorite charity from a list of local Utah-based organizations identified through the help of the United Way of Utah County. After tabulating the results, Primary Children’s Hospital finished in first place with 8,048 votes, Kids On The Move finished in second place with 7,956 votes, and Family Support and Treatment Center finished in third place with 7,645. The remaining charities will each receive $1,000 for their participation in UCCU Charity Voting contest.
