United Federal Credit Union Partners with The Storehouse to Purchase and Deliver Gifts to Over 100 Children in Need

The Storehouse

HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. – United Federal Credit Union (United) employees partnered with The Storehouse to purchase and deliver gifts to over 100 children in need in Henderson County, North Carolina, as part of the Blessings in Boxes community initiative.

The Storehouse is a non-profit organization based in Hendersonville, that 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.

In November, United announced it would be partnering with The Storehouse again in support of the 2019 Blessings in Boxes program, donating over $10,000 to help purchase gifts.

“Our team is always honored to partner with The Storehouse and help them with their noble cause,” said United Market Vice President, Lee Beason. “The Storehouse is an inspiration to the entire community and the Blessings in Boxes program is one that United employees are always happy to support. We are blessed to be able to spread some holiday cheer to those who might be struggling this time of year.”

In 2019, the Blessings in Boxes program served 2,178 children. For more information on The Storehouse and how you can get involved through donations or volunteering in the future for this initiative, please click on the links below.
