America First Credit Union Donates to Little Lambs Foundation for Kids Through its ‘Blue Zone’ program

Every time the Aggies get into the ‘Blue Zone’, America First Credit Union donates $100 to the non-profit

LOGAN, UT – November 29, 2023 – America First Credit Union (AFCU), in partnership with Utah State Athletics, is supporting the community through its ‘Blue Zone’ program. Every time the Aggies get into the Blue Zone during the 2023 season, AFCU donates $100.00 to Little Lambs Foundation for Kids, which means the more touchdowns Utah State scores, the more the community scores.

The program culminated with the final home game of the season on November 18. Wrapping up a successful season, America First Credit Union presented a $5,000 donation to Little Lambs Foundation for Kids from America First Credit Union.

“One of the pillars of America First Credit Union is supporting organizations that are doing great things to help the communities in our beautiful State. One such organization is Little Lambs Foundation for Kids in Logan, providing diapers for low-income families, and much-needed support to kids in foster care or who find themselves in emergency shelters,” said Thayne Shaffer, America First Credit Union CEO. “Our ‘Blue Zone’ program lets us support these organizations, while also supporting Aggies football and Utah State Athletics.”

“Utah State University Department of Athletics is committed to investing in our communities and families, especially the children within the state,” said USU Vice President and Director of Athletics Diana Sabau. “We are thankful for our partnership with America First Credit Union and the positive impact they have on Cache Valley and the great state of Utah.”

This season marked the second year of AFCU’s ‘Blue Zone’ program with Utah State. Given the success of the program and the support of the community the program creates, America First Credit Union plans to continue the program for years to come.
