Food Drive

The 2024 Food Drive - Bring a Bag & Get a Bag!

Help Us Re-stock Our Local Food Pantries  January 22 - February 22, 2024

Our local food banks work very hard during the Christmas season to provide food for families in our communities struggling to make the holidays special.  The employees at United Bank have chosen to sponsor a food drive throughout our footprint to gather items to restock the local pantries for the new year.

Please join us in this worthy initiative by bringing in a minimum of 10 items (see the list below), and we'll exchange your bag for one of our beautiful reusable shopping totes!  A bag for a bag!

Collection boxes are in all United Bank offices for your donations.  Stop by anytime (or many times) to drop your 10 items off between January 22 and February 22, 2024.
