Nebo Credit Union is celebrating this wonderful time of year with its annual Warm the Soles service project. Thanks to the generosity of our employees, members and local schools, we were able to purchase 545 new pairs of name-brand shoes for children of all ages in 41 schools and three support programs in Nebo School District.

r

This holiday tradition has become a community-supported event. Administrators, teachers, secretaries, support staff and volunteers gather names and measure feet. Spanish Fork Junior High School and East Meadows Elementary School donate all their proceeds from their winter fundraisers to our Warm the Soles program. Members of the Park Elementary School student council donate their time wrapping shoes while learning that through their selfless acts, they are helping others. The staff at Famous Footwear in the Provo Towne Center mall volunteer hours of their time helping Nebo Credit Union employees and families pick out and purchase name-brand shoes.

r

“This seems to always happen early on a very cold snowy December morning. At first, I wasn’t thrilled about getting up early to go shopping at 6 a.m. But after the fact, I realized that not only was it a worthwhile way to help others, but I actually enjoyed myself doing it,” said Andrew Glenn, Nebo Credit Union’s Spanish Fork branch manager.

r

Nebo Credit Union employees, family and many volunteers participate in the annual “Wrap party,” another Nebo holiday tradition that they all look forward to. The wrapped shoes are then delivered to all the schools and some very happy and thankful children.

r

Nebo Credit Union would like to thank their employees, who excitedly look forward to this tremendous undertaking with love and generosity each year. We are also very grateful to our members, schools and community for their support and generosity,

r

“Individually we may not be able to do a lot or buy many shoes, but as a collective, we have accomplished a great thing,” said Dale Phelps, Nebo Credit Union president.
