At VIP Limousine, we genuinely love our hometown of Salt Lake City, what with beautiful vistas and great opportunity. However, to love a place also means to love the portions of it that may not be as eye-catching or appealing. We know that SLC isn’t perfect, but we wanted to see if there was a way to make it somewhat better.
In the state where volunteerism ranks the highest in the nation, we ourselves have donated limousine service to certain organizations in need. These include nonprofits such as the Make-a-Wish Foundation of Utah and the Miss Utah Pageant, the state division of the Miss America organization. They are wonderful and do many great things around the state and the nation, and we gladly have provided our services to them. However, we wanted to think bigger and jump into the fray ourselves.
So we got in touch with Salt Lake County, our local government agency that goes beyond the control of Salt Lake City itself. Salt Lake County is the local administrative body for the metropolitan branch of Meals on Wheels.
For those who are unfamiliar, Meals on Wheels America is a nonprofit organization which, through the efforts of thousands of volunteers, delivers meals to the elderly all across the United States. Those who participate take an hour out of their day to deliver hot meals to a set number of individuals.
VIP Limousine may be a name which people may think is exclusive solely to the fanciest hotels and the most prime real estate developments. However, this couldn’t be more wrong. We serve all types of clientele, and we do so quite gladly.
As a result, our company makes deliveries in the neighborhood of Rose Park in the northwestern corner of Salt Lake City. It is one of the poorer areas in the county, a far cry from the beautiful Avenues, Sugar House, downtown, and the up-and-coming areas such as Liberty Wells.
We believe, however, that whatever neighborhood someone lives in, that they deserve love and respect worthy of a VIP, whether you’re a pedestrian, potential client, client, neighbor, friend, relative, or anything else. Hence, we want to apply the same treatment we give our clients to those who are less fortunate than us.
Our route begins near 700 North and Interstate 215, not too far from the Salt Lake City International Airport and the Davis County border. It winds through the northwest part of Rose Park between a series of homes and streets, ending up near the southeast corner of the airport. The recipients of Meals on Wheels are always excited to see us walking up to their doorway with a hot meal, cold drink, and a smile. We service stand-alone homes, apartment complexes, and specialty living facilities. We bring meals directly to recipients and make sure there’s nothing else they need, whether it be a refreshed oxygen tank, a gentle pat on the back, or a quick laugh.
This new experience for us has been so gratifying that while we are announcing it now, we have decided to make it a permanent fixture in the company with multiple chauffeurs taking turns making the deliveries. Our company is the business of making people’s days with something special, usually a limousine. But we know that we can go beyond that. Community volunteer work is important not only for those we serve, but also, admittedly, for ourselves to get out from behind the desks and steering wheels and the world of prom and corporate clients. It also helps our local agencies and organizations to serve more people more effectively, more efficiently, and with more joy.
