OGDEN, UTAH, March 30, 2016 – Wasatch Peaks Credit Union employees and members joined forces and participated in Warm the Soles to benefit children right here in Weber County. They raised $13,228.17 and donated 388 pairs of shoes to children in Ogden and Weber School District. Wasatch Peaks had a goal of raising $10,000, but surpassed this goal and provided shoes to children who may have otherwise gone without adequate footwear for the winter.
Wasatch Peaks employees brought these shoes to elementary schools all over Weber County including James Madison, Roosevelt, Municipal, Burch Creek, Washington Terrace, and North Park Elementary School.
“It is such a wonderful opportunity for the members and staff of Wasatch Peaks to participate in this great endeavor that allows us to give shoes to children in our community,” said Wasatch Peaks Credit Union CE Blake Burrell.
Wasatch Peaks is actively involved with the community and is looking forward to participating in Warm the Soles again next year. They are planning on adding even more schools and shoes next year thanks to the generous donations provided by both employees and members.
