(L to R): Matt Baumgartner, Riverdale branch manager; Greg Reed, senior vice president of member service – Mountain West Region for Security Service Federal Credit Union; Gavin Hutchinson, president at EnableUtah; and Natalie Summers, director of operations at EnableUtah.

Security Service Charitable Foundation is helping people with cognitive and physical disabilities maintain employment by presenting EnableUtah with a $10,000 donation. EnableUtah is a non-profit organization that has been providing jobs, skills training and employment services to adults with disabilities for more than 50 years. This feat is achieved through their janitorial services, production and secure document shredding operations.

In March, their secure document shredding facility was severely damaged by fire which destroyed much of their equipment and left disabled workers without employment. Security Service’s $10,000 donation helped replace a damaged forklift at EnableUtah’s shred facility. This forklift is a critical part of their daily operations, as it hauls one-plus-ton bales of shredded paper to the scale and then to trucks for recycling.

"Our goal is to get everyone working who wants to work and Security Service is helping us do just that," said Gavin Hutchinson, president for EnableUtah. "This new forklift is helping us restore operations in our secure shredding facility where we employ 12 disabled adults and conduct shredding for 159 Utah companies. It is because of the generosity of donations like this that we are able to help provide quality employment opportunities for disabled members of our community."

"We are honored to help EnableUtah maintain their ability to employ disabled individuals after the devastating fire that damaged their secure shredding facility,” said Greg Reed, senior vice president of member service - Mountain West Region for Security Service Federal Credit Union. “Their dedication to serving disabled citizens is an awe-inspiring example of how organizations can truly make the world around them a better and more inclusive place.”

The Security Service Charitable Foundation helps further Security Service Federal Credit Union’s corporate goal of community service by contributing to deserving organizations and causes in the credit union's market areas.
