As part of its annual “Warm the Soles” initiative, America First Credit Union hosted pizza parties and provided new, gift-wrapped shoes to more than 200 underprivileged students in Las Vegas. America First employees visited Red Rock Elementary School on Monday, Dec. 11 and Gibson Middle School Friday, Dec. 15 to hand out shoes and host a festive holiday celebration, complete with Santa Claus and pizza.
Celebrating its 23rd year of the “Warm the Soles” project, the credit union works to raise funds and donations from members throughout November and December to purchase shoes for children in need during the holiday season. The project is coordinated through America First’s 501(c)3 volunteer service arm, the America First Credit Union Charitable Foundation.
Last year alone, America First helped to provide more than 2,000 pairs of shoes for children in need through generous donations from employees and members, as well as funds generated through the “Skip-A-Payment” program.
