Bank of Utah Celebrates 60 Years in Business

Press Release

November 26, 2012

Imagine Ogden in 1952, the year Bank of Utah was founded. Dozens of whistles were heard throughout the day, as trains carrying both goods and people pulled in and out of Union Station. Gentlemen in fedoras and ladies in Chanel-style suits frequented the flourishing Washington Boulevard, a business district filled with thriving locally-owned stores and punctuated by the elegant Ben Lomond Hotel.

In honor of its 60 years in business, Bank of Utah is hosting a “Warm Bodies, Warm Souls” coat drive from Nov. 26 through Dec. 14. The public is invited to donate new or clean, gently-used coats, hats, scarves, gloves, blankets and other cold-weather accessories at Bank of Utah branch locations. The cold weather gear will then be distributed to homeless and low income families through the following charities:

The Lantern House in Ogden, Cache Food Pantry in Logan, Tremonton Community Pantry, New Hope Crisis Center in Brigham City, Community Action Services and Food Bank in Orem, Crossroads Urban Center in Salt Lake City and Bountiful Community Food Pantry.

“Times have changed, and so have the styles, but Bank of Utah’s core value of service to the community remains,” said Scott H. Parkinson, Bank of Utah’s senior vice president of marketing and communications. “For 60 years it has been our priority to support local businesses and care for the community with events such as our Warm Bodies, Warm Souls Coat Drive.”

To donate to the “Warm Bodies, Warm Souls” coat drive, visit any Bank of Utah branch and place donations in decorated receptacles. For more information and bank locations, visit: www.bankofutah.com.
