MEMBERLINE NEWSLETTER - DECEMBER 2021

One of the unexpected benefits of my position here at America First is that I regularly have the chance to hear different people’s stories. Some of those stories belong to members of our credit union, and others belong to members of the communities we serve. And often they center on the countless ways in which people enthusiastically give to, care for, and encourage each other.


America First is collecting funds to buy new shoes for schoolchildren in need. Our Warm the Soles of Kids program has become an enduring tradition. And we’re counting on your generosity to ensure its continued success. Contributions are accepted through December 31. Use online banking to transfer an amount of your choice, visit your local branch, or call 1-800-999-3961.


We all look forward to the holidays, but scammers enjoy this time of year even more, because financial security might not be top of mind when you’re busy shopping, spending, and planning. Keep an eye out for these & other seasonal frauds.
