Genesis Alkali made a generous donation of food and supplies to local food banks and other organizations in Sweetwater County on Monday, July 1. Food and supplies had been ordered in advance as part of the company’s preparations to ensure business continuity in the run up to negotiating a new contract with its labor union. 

Genesis Alkali was pleased it reached an agreement Sunday evening with the United Steel Workers Union, Local 13214, on a new five-year contract. To benefit the community, the company made arrangements to quickly donate food, paper plates, cutlery, and personal hygiene items that would no longer be needed, some of which were perishable.

Food and supplies were donated to the following Food Banks and organizations in Rock Springs and Green River:

There were another 20 community volunteers who assisted in the effort.

Wow what a great day. A big shout and thanks to Genesis for thinking of the community. I know on our end, what we received today was spectacular and will be helpful. Thanks to Kathy and the food bank for allowing us to do a total takeover. Thanks to the Football players for helping everyone, without them there it would have taken double the time.
