Mountain America and the Utah Jazz "Pass it Along" to The Adoption Exchange

Mountain America and the Utah Jazz "Pass it Along" to The Adoption Exchange

PR Newswire

SANDY, Utah, Feb. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Mountain America Credit Union and the Utah Jazz are pleased to announce The Adoption Exchange as this season's fourth recipient of "Pass It Along," a program featuring fan-nominated opportunities that rewards five local charitable organizations with $5,000 each. With this month's donation, "Pass It Along" has contributed $175,000 to local nonprofits since its inception in 2013.

Mountain America presents a $5,000 check to The Adoption Exchange at the February 22, 2020, Utah Jazz game.

The Utah office of The Adoption Exchange is dedicated to helping waiting children in Utah find safe, loving, and permanent homes. The agency also assists adoptive families by providing resource information and referrals, support, advocacy, and education.

"The Adoption Exchange is so thankful to the Utah Jazz and Mountain America Credit Union for supporting the many children waiting in Utah's foster care system for an adoptive home," says Lindsay Kaeding, Utah director of development at The Adoption Exchange. "Without the generous support of many community partners, The Adoption Exchange could not fulfill its vision of all children in loving and safe families."

The Adoption Exchange received tickets to February 22, 2020, Utah Jazz game against the Houston Rockets, where representatives from Mountain America and the Jazz presented a $5,000 check to The Adoption Exchange.

"Mountain America is honored to help local children find caring and nurturing homes through our support of The Adoption Exchange," says Sterling Nielsen, president and chief executive officer at Mountain America Credit Union. "Transitioning children from foster care to permanent homes provides the support and stability needed to succeed in school and overcome emotional and physical challenges." 

One winner is announced each month, from November through March 2020, for a total of $25,000 donated to five deserving organizations.

This season's first three "Pass It Along" recipients were USANA Kids Eat, Operation Warm, and Utah Parent Center.
