Atem supports the Salt Lake City YMCA events and family nights where two of her children receive care.  She immigrated to the United States from Africa through a refugee program in the hopes of having a better life – leaving her family and friends behind. Her path led her to Utah where she met her husband and had three children.  Despite recently being widowed, Atem remains positive and is teaching her three young children to persevere and thrive no matter what life brings.

Atem’s number one priority is caring for her children.  She also works a full-time job and participates in Salt Lake City YMCA activities. She is a joy to all who share time with her.

Atem was celebrated during an event at the Salt Lake City YMCA in front of her family, friends, and Salt Lake City YMCA staff. To recognize Atem for being a “Great Mom” and community champion, Armour surprised Atem with $2,500 in free groceries at Smith’s.

“Rebecca Atem exemplifies the spirit of the Armour ‘Great Moms’ campaign,” said Jennifer Zmrhal, Smithfield Foods senior director of marketing. “She is a wonderful mom to her three children, and is dedicated to the Salt Lake City YMCA. We are honored to celebrate and reward Ms. Atem with $2,500 in free groceries at Smith’s.”

The Armour “Great Moms” campaign is the brand’s national program designed to highlight and reward everyday great moms across the country by recognizing and showing appreciation for these unsung champions. 

The campaign includes monthly events to surprise and celebrate “Great Moms” across the country for their extraordinary efforts in their communities and at home.

"I love being a mom,” said Atem.  “It is a lot of hard work, but it makes me appreciate what my mom did.  It is great that Armour and Smith's have done this for me.  I am grateful."
