“We are so grateful for Unitus and our partnership to help make the holidays special for many local families,” said SnowCap Executive Director Judy Alley. “The need is greater than ever this year. Families continue to struggle but when they come through our doors, they know they’re not alone and that people care.”
SnowCap Community Charities is a local philanthropic organization that provides food, clothing, advocacy and other services to 8,000 low-income residents each month. Since 2001, Unitus has partnered with SnowCap to serve those in need of basic necessities. In addition to ongoing support throughout the year, Unitus encourages staff and members to donate hundreds of pounds of clothes, food and toys for SnowCap to distribute during the holidays.
“Our friends at SnowCap Community Charities do an outstanding job caring for our most vulnerable local residents year-round,”
Between November 13 and December 14 of this year, Unitus also donated $5 to the charity for each new checking and savings account opened at its Mall 205 and downtown Plaza Branch locations. Unitus staff presented SnowCap with a check and donations today.
