America First Credit Union presented a surprise monetary donation to Operation Warmheart on Friday, Nov. 18 to help service men and women purchase turkeys for their families this Thanksgiving holiday.
In partnership with Smith’s Food & Drug, the donation will enable more than 500 military families at Creech and Nellis Air Force Bases to have a turkey on their table, when they may otherwise not have.
Operation Warmheart is an organization made up of volunteer military members who help fellow airmen and their families in times of need.
With a strong commitment to serving those who serve to protect our country, this is the third year America First Credit Union has donated $10,000.
The donation was part of the annual Turkey-Thon, hosted by Lotus Broadcasting and 97.1 The Point, 8 News Now and HELP of Southern Nevada.
