Region – UniBank has kicked off its annual Holiday Giving campaign to make the season brighter for individuals and families throughout the community. The campaign is part of the bank’s dedication to improving life for the communities it serves.
Each UniBank branch has chosen an organization that fills a need in their community and supports the program by making and purchasing items, and accepting donations from customers and the general public. Many local residents face difficult times around the holiday season and UniBank is pleased to work with local charitable organizations in support of this effort to help its neighbors. Branch collections are as follows:
