TNS Supports Local Charity
Salt Lake City, UT, December 14, 2012, Trusted Network Solutions, in conjunction with the Utah Association for Intellectual Disabilities (UAID), joined other volunteers in ensuring that persons with intellectual disabilities received gifts of “the necessities” for the holiday season. According to a UAID representative, “UAID works to meet the basic needs of the clients.”
TNS picked thirty ornaments which listed different individuals and their needs/ wants; they then ventured out to purchase jeans, boots, coats, books, art sets, etc. TNS employees enjoyed seeing photos and reading about each participant, “…it made the experience more personal; we kept their likes and interests in mind while shopping,” reported Lindsee Nagel, a TNS employee.
With the volunteer efforts of companies like TNS, and individuals within the community, UAID was able to provide 1,206 intellectually disabled adults (and some children) with gifts and other necessities that they would have otherwise struggled to purchase.
