America First Credit Union President Hosts Wrapping Party for Warm the Soles of Kids Program

AMERICAN FORK, UT—December 6, 2012—John Lund, President and CEO of America First Credit Union, recently hosted a holiday gift-wrapping party in American Fork for the 18th Annual Warm the Soles of Kids program.

Lund was joined at the party by America First employee volunteers of the credit union’s The Greater Good service program and Randy Halley, Senior Vice President over branches, to wrap new shoes for select children in need.

Children in 10 schools and support programs, from Brigham City to Las Vegas, will be receiving early Christmas presents—new shoes—because of the generosity of America First members, employees, and concerned citizens.

“Our American Fork wrapping party for the Warm the Soles of Kids program was one of many throughout the state during the next couple weeks,” said Lund.  “It was fun wrapping with these good employees and feeling the excitement that the new shoes will bring to deserving children.”
