United Community Bank Donates $10,000 to United Way

June 22, 2020

United Community Bank is proud to announce gifts totaling $10,000 to four United Way chapters throughout the bank’s southeastern footprint. The donations, which will help United Way further its mission and assist those in the community negatively affected by COVID-19, were made on behalf of customers who participated in the bank’s inaugural virtual Customer Appreciation Day activities. Receiving organizations include United Way of the Midlands (SC), United Way of the Greater Triangle (NC), United Way of Greater Atlanta (GA), and United Way of Rome and Floyd County (GA). 

“The past few months have been tough for our customers and communities, but we were proud to support through our participation in the Paycheck Protection Program, and now through a gift to the incredible United Way,” said Keri Wise, Head of Retail Sales. “Showing appreciation for our customers is a long tradition at United Community Bank, and we are proud that we were still able to engage with them virtually, share positivity and support those in need.”

Each of the four United Way locations will receive $2,500. Between May 1-15, United asked customers to connect with them on Facebook in various ways for the benefit of the community. Customers could increase the donation by sharing ‘good stories’ of uplifting acts in the community like sewing masks for local hospitals or donating food to neighbors in need.
