Contest results in 50-plus pairs of new shoes for children

Greater Nevada helps Salvation Army with winter “Shoedrobe”

CARSON CITY, NV (January 12, 2015) — Thanks to the generosity of many area residents, Greater Nevada Credit Union collected dozens of new children’s shoes for The Salvation Army last month during the credit union’s winter Shoedrobe contest.

Community members were welcome to stop by any Greater Nevada Credit Union branch December 1 through 24, 2014 for a chance to win a winter shoe wardrobe (or “shoedrobe”). No purchase was necessary to play the game, though donating a new pair of children’s shoes for The Salvation Army automatically resulted in three entries.

During the holidays, Greater Nevada also helped The Salvation Army collect Christmas gifts for local children in need through the Angel Tree program, and Greater Nevada employee volunteers helped to distribute Christmas gifts and meals to local families.

Greater Nevada is headquartered in Carson City and has been helping Nevadans with their financial needs since 1949.  The credit union serves 47,000 consumers and small businesses, and has more than $500 million in assets.  Greater Nevada has also been consistently recognized as both Best Financial Institution in many of its service areas and as a top employer by the Reno/Tahoe Best Places to Work Awards.
