If you shop at the Home Depot in Sandy, you likely recognize the smile of Sonny Davila and know his friendly demeanor with customers. In addition to his bright orange work apron, he wears a U.S. Marine Corps baseball cap. 

Davila was recognized by the City Council for having organized Home Depot Kid’s Appreciation Events for the past 10 years. Back in 2009, Davila had an idea for a recognition program for kids who were working hard in school, so he contacted his store manager as well as the Draper Police Department and principals of every elementary school in Draper to bring that idea to fruition.

“He has conducted…amazing work. We want to express our thanks to Sonny and the Home Depot for sponsoring this event,” Mayor Troy Walker said.
