The Ones who Need Us
At Mindshare, we are mothers and we are fathers. We serve as scout leaders and public servants. We coach children’s sports teams, and we volunteer at schools. We are donors of blood, time, and money. When we give back, we start at the local level. We hold ourselves accountable to individuals first, and then we collaborate with fellow organizations to tackle the big picture. As a company, we actively partner with the Ouelessebougou Alliance, Primary Children’s Medical Center, and the Utah Food Bank.
The Ouelessebougou Alliance was founded in 1985 by a group of Utah community leaders in response to the devastating drought in North Africa during the 1980s. Today, the Alliance works directly with 25 villages in Mali, West Africa, where it focuses on assisting the local people in creating sustainable solutions for three basic areas:
drinking water, sanitation, vaccinations, mosquito nets
school construction, teacher training, school supplies, enrollment plans
village loans, business training, local commerce
Utah Food Bank
Utah Food Bank was founded in 1904 as the Salt Lake Charity Association. Over its 100+ years of operation under various names, and in various forms, Utah Food Bank has retained its commitment to serving Utah’s citizens in need. The mission of the organization is to meet the immediate, basic needs of people in Utah’s communities who don't know where else to turn.
The Holiday Food Drive
During Utah Food Bank’s biggest food drive of the year, Mindshare employees welcome the unmistakable donation bins into the office and do their part to hit the drive’s Herculean goal of collecting 1.5 million pounds of food and 28,000 turkeys for distribution during the holiday season.
