Send Santa to the Troops

United Financial is partnering with the Yellow Ribbon Guard, a group dedicated to making a difference in the lives of our local men & women who serve in the military. The items collected help provide holiday care packages to local service men & women stationed abroad. Care packages include handwritten cards, snack food, games, personal hygiene items, and other holiday gifts.

We will be collecting items at all 6 branches from November 1-19th. Monetary donations will also be accepted to help offset the cost of packaging and shipping.  Please make sure to look over what is needed and what cannot be shipped overseas.

Collections boxes are available at all locations right inside the front doors. Items can be dropped off between 10:00am – 3:00pm, Monday – Friday. 

Monetary donations can also be accepted at any location, at our Drive Thru or via the donation button below.
