Salt Lake City, UT, March 30, 2020 - The Utah community is unique in the way it comes together in times of crisis. At the first sign of the COVID-19 crisis, the Utah business community rallied together and coordinated between community and civic leaders to explore how best to help the community. Through Silicon Slopes, the voice, hub, and heart of Utah’s startup community, business leaders have committed to raising $5M to help Utah respond and assist those impacted by COVID-19.

Benefit Corporation and outdoor gear brand Cotopaxi, as part of this effort, has designed the #OneUtah t-shirt campaign, proceeds of which will be donated to support this fundraiser.
