United Federal Credit Union (United) donated more than $1,600 to local families and organizations in North Carolina as part of the 2021 Pay It Forward initiative. As part of Pay It Forward, United provided $20 to every employee to give to a needy individual, family, or organization of their choice. Many departments and branches combined funds and even added their own financial contributions to create a more substantial donation. Organizations supported by United employees in North Carolina in 2021 include: Fifth Street Ministries, five children from Emma Elementary, as well as three families in need this holiday season. Collectively, United employees donated more than $19,300 to 54 different families, individuals, and community organizations across the six states where branches are located.
