“Our bank employees have their fingers on the pulse of the needs of the communities in which they serve,” said Scott H. Parkinson, senior vice president of marketing and communications for Bank of Utah. “With Mother’s Day coming up the first part of May, it seemed like the perfect time to shower struggling new moms and moms-to-be with gifts of clothing and supplies for their babies. We had a wonderful response to our first shower project last July, and we hope the community will again join us in donating baby items this Mother’s Day season.”
