Coins for Christmas - H1


Every single year local members and non-members of East Idaho Credit Union donate to the Coins for Christmas Program. If you wish to donate, please visit your local branch or use the link below to donate with a debit or credit card.


Currently, the only way for a child to receive new shoes from the Coins for Christmas Program is to have it referred by a qualified individual. The reason for this is to make sure that the shoes are going to those children that really need it. But don’t worry, if the child is in need it’s easy! Please contact contact the child’s school counselor or social worker and they will submit the request on the child’s behalf. Most school counselors and social workers in the area are already familiar with the program and the appropriate steps to take.
