United Partners with The Storehouse to Provide Gifts for 75 Children this Holiday Season

Blessings in a Box

Hendersonville, North Carolina – United Federal Credit Union (United) employees once again partnered with The Storehouse to purchase gifts for 75 children in need in Henderson County, North Carolina, as part of The Storehouse’s Blessings in Boxes community initiative.

The Storehouse is a non-profit organization based in Hendersonville. It provides food and hygiene products to people with limited financial resources and, often, limited life skills. Its annual Blessings in Boxes program provides clothing and toys to children as well as coats, hats, gloves and blankets to anyone in need during the holiday season.

United donated more than $9,500 to help purchase gifts and support volunteers as part of its partnership with The Storehouse to support the 2020 Blessings in Boxes program. Overall, the program was able to serve more than 550 families, including 1,575 children.

“With the pandemic, our team knew this year it was even more important to partner with The Storehouse and make sure families in our community were taken care of,” said United Business Development Manager, David Crow. “The Storehouse is an inspiration to the entire community and the Blessings in Boxes program is one that United employees look forward to supporting every year. We hope our continued partnership is able to spread a little holiday cheer in what has been a tough year.”
