Hendersonville, North Carolina – United Federal Credit Union (United) employees once again partnered with The Storehouse to purchase gifts for 104 children 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 $10,000 to help purchase gifts and support volunteers as part of its partnership with The Storehouse to support the 2021 Blessings in Boxes program. Overall, the program was able to serve more than 1,800 children.

“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,” said United Business Development Manager, David Crow. “We hope our continued partnership is able to spread a little holiday cheer in what has been another tough year.”
