Nonprofits Receive $110,000 in Donations from America First Credit Union to Make Impact on Local Communities
Riverdale, Utah – To uplift the communities in which America First Credit Union (AFCU) is invested, the group donated $110,000 to 11 nonprofits serving Utah and Southern Nevada. As part of the credit union’s Community Assistance Program (CAP), the credit union recognized each of the nonprofits at an annual event celebrating nonprofits.
During the event, each organization was presented with a $10,000 check, which they will use to further their respective missions. The local nonprofits recognized include: Cathedral of Madeleine Good Samaritan Program, Catholic Community Services Joyce Hansen Hall Food Bank, Christmas Box International, Food & Care Coalition, For the Kids, Safe Nest Shelter, Lantern House, The Road Home, Three Square Food Bank, Your Community Connection of Northern Utah, and The Logan Family Center.
“We are grateful for our dedicated members whose contributions make these funds possible,” said Nicole Cypers, AFCU VP of public relations. “Our foundation will continue to uphold the philosophy of people helping people because it’s in our DNA.”
For the past 30 years, AFCU has donated to nonprofits. The purpose of the CAP program is to provide strategic financial support to some of the greatest community needs – job assistance, training, housing, food and medical services.
