Granite School District, and Coller Industries: A long term relationship.

Congratulations to Sharon Hall for winning the 2014 Excel Outstanding Educator award!


It has been about 4 years since the first time Coller Industries donated to Granite School District. With each year the amount that we have decided to donate has increased, simply because it gives us a great deal of pride to put funds back into our community. Last year we contributed the most we have ever donated to any company in the amount of $10,000.

This year, we are honored to be able to present the 2014 Excel Outstanding Educator Award. Our company’s president, Gary Coller, will be attending an event to represent our company. He will give a brief speech, and present the award to the person who has done the most in their field to improve public, and secondary education.

There is something incredibly fulfilling about knowing our small efforts may make a difference in the lives of some of our local children.

Donation to the Granite Education Foundation

This marks the third consecutive year that Name Tag, Inc. has donated to the Granite Education Foundation. This year, we donated $5,000 which was used to help purchase Walmart and Payless ShoeSource gift cards. The gift cards will be distributed to needy children in Salt Lake City’s Granite School District who need warm coats and shoes this winter.

We here at Coller Industries are happy to help the foundation again this year.

“All of the people at Coller Industries are pleased to be able to help others during this Christmas season. We have been successful so it is only appropriate that we help those who happen to be down on their luck right now,” said Clyde Coller, founder and CEO of Coller Industries.

Some samples of little notes and cards from students and families who benefited from our donation last year:

“I really needed the clothes. You helped me a lot, Thank you.”

“Thank you for helping us with the gift certificate for my children. My children were very happy. I am very grateful for the help that you provided for my family. Thank you for helping us out during our hardship. May God bless you so that you can continue to help families in need.”

“Thank you so much for helping make this Christmas a good one for our girls. We truly appreciate your thoughtfulness.”

“Thank you for the stuff you gave to the school that was very nice of you I thank you I like all the things I got.”

“Thank you for the clothes, they keep me warm and I look handsome in them.”

“I wanted to let you know how truly grateful we are for your generous donation. You might view your donation as something small but to those who need a little extra help its a true gift. I’m blessed to know there are still people with giving hearts, especially in trying times like now. Your gift means everything to us.”

“Thank you so much for your help this past Christmas. Your gifts were a true Blessing, and it showed us the true meaning of the season. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
