United Heritage Credit Union Donates over 14,000 Diapers to Support Local Families' Needs
The United Heritage Charity Foundation Sponsored PATH's April Donation Drive
Many low-income parents across East Texas come to PATH for essential items, so PATH partners with sponsors to help meet the demand. The Charity Foundation along with the Credit Union offered to hold a Diaper Drive benefiting PATH for the month of April. The closest diaper bank to those in need is located in Dallas which is over an hour and a half away. PATH is one of the only agencies in the region that regularly distributes diapers.
The UHCF Board is pleased to see the Credit Union's employees and members participate in giving to this meaningful cause, as it helps to provide families with a basic necessity. "It's been great to see what our members and employees have been able to donate for this Diaper Drive. We can't wait to deliver all of these diapers to PATH. We're thankful for the opportunity to contribute to such a worthy cause," commented Chairman Chelsea Schrimpf. United Heritage Credit Union is committed to supporting local organizations that serve the communities and help to better improve the lives of others.
