At Utah First Credit Union, we are committed to making the lives of our Utah neighbors better—and we couldn’t do it without our community partners, employees and members.
Every year, the Warm the Soles shoe drive provides shoes for children who may otherwise go without warm winter footwear. This year, the UFCU Community and Community Volunteers of Utah raised the funds to buy 750 pairs of shoes for Utah children. We thank you for your support!
Every dollar raised went directly to the purchase of shoes that will warm the soles of a Utah child this winter. Each pair of shoes was carefully selected using the using a child’s gender, age and shoe size. In order to make sure every child receives exactly what he or she needs, a gift receipt was included in every box.
A special thank you to all the volunteers who joined us for the December 4, 2014 holiday wrapping party at the Utah First Community Center. Utah First and Community volunteers worked diligently to individually wrap hundreds of shoes, giving children the special opportunity to unwrap their own present this Christmas.
The 750 pairs of shoes were donated to four local community programs: Homeless Youth Center, the YWCA Women’s Shelter, Salt Lake Boys and Girls Club and The Guadalupe School.
Yesterday we hosted a special Christmas “Shoe Party” at the Guadalupe School. Over 250 children enjoyed the holiday cheer and unwrapped their very own pairs of shoes. Check out the story from FOX 13.
Thank you for helping us warm the soles of Utah children this holiday season!
