America First provided new winter boots for special needs students.

The $ 6.3 billion America First Credit Union in Riverdale, Utah, helped bring a financial literacy lesson on Feb. 17 to special needs students by giving them a prepaid Visa card to buy snow boots, a widely sought commodity during this long and snowy winter season. Most special needs students in the Transition Academy at Jordan Valley School never used a credit or debit card to purchase products at a store. With a little help from teachers and aides, each student was able to shop for their new winter boots, approach a cashier and complete their purchase with a America First Credit Union prepaid Visa card. Transition Academy provides students with disabilities opportunities to lead greater independence for living and employment.
