r By Lana HiskeyrFor nearly twenty Christmases, Nebo Credit Union, with the help of local businesses and community members, has participated in “Warm the Soles”, a fundraiser organized to provide new shoes for students. Beginning in 1999 with only 25 pairs of shoes, the effort has grown to provide 952 pairs of shoes for students in 46 schools.

With planning beginning in January, teachers scout out students in need, get their shoe size, and send the information to Nebo Credit Union. Nebo Credit Union employees, in turn, purchase the shoes right before Christmas. After the shoes have been wrapped, they are delivered to the appropriate school.

East Meadows Elementary, Rees Elementary, and Spanish Fork Junior all donated the money they earned through their schools’ Penny Wars. Proceeds from Springville Junior’s Holiday Dance was donated. Students from Maple Mountain High helped wrap the shoes with wrapping paper donated by Tempkin Commercial Packaging. Additionally, Nebo Credit Union customers had the option of deferring a loan payment to donate money to Warm the Soles.
