Reliable Controls gives back! It’s our turn to show our appreciation for the community that has already given so much to us. As part of our annual Christmas festivities, Reliable Controls Corporation is hosting a fundraiser, with 100% of proceeds going toward a local non-profit organization.

The Christmas Box House was founded in 1996 by Richard Paul Evans, with the motto “every child deserves a childhood.” Evans, a New York Times best-selling author, wanted to create a place where Utah’s children felt safe, and named that place after his very first novel, The Christmas Box. Reliable Controls Corporation is inspired by the work and efforts of this organization, which is why we have again chosen them to receive our annual Christmas donation. We hope the donation will help The Christmas Box International continue to do wonderful things in our community. 

Since its founding in 1996, The Christmas Box House has grown with great success. In 2015, they served 7,551 children and teens who were victims of abuse, neglect and abandonment, and annually average helping more than 6,000 children locally, nationally and internationally through their programs.

The organization provides clothing, books, toys, school supplies, dental care and holiday activities and gifts to 1,400 children, ages 0 to 18, at three local Christmas Box House emergency children’s shelters in Ogden, Salt Lake City and Moab. Their efforts also extend to another 6,100 at-risk children in other Utah communities and even to other countries through community based Christmas Box Resource Rooms.

At this time, Reliable Controls Corporation has raised over $6,000 for the Christmas Box International, and we still hope to increase that number significantly! We will be accepting donations all the way up until our Annual Christmas Party on December 3rd, 2016.  If you would like to make a donation to the Christmas Box International, please contact Brittany McDermott at Brittany.McDermott@rcontrols.net for additional details. Thanks to all of those who have already donated to this wonderful organization!
