Countybank’s Anderson team recently donated $855 as part of their annual Pacesetter Campaign to the United Way of Anderson County.
“Our team is grateful for Countybank’s support this year through monetary donations and volunteer work,” said Carol Burdette, CEO of United Way of Anderson County. “2020 has been a challenging year for us because of the pandemic, which makes financial support from organizations like Countybank even more important.”
Countybank holds an annual Pacesetter Campaign in each of its markets to support local services and programs focusing on education, financial stability, health, and basic needs throughout local communities. Countybank has also historically supported United Way through many volunteer opportunities, including a monthly “Casual for a Cause” fundraiser and the United Way of Anderson Snack Pack Program.
“Partnering with United Way allows us to give back to our community,” said Mike Wooles, Senior Vice President, Anderson Market Executive of Countybank. “We recognize the importance of supporting United Way this year in their efforts to make Anderson a better place to live.”
The United Way of Anderson serves its community and fundraises through employee campaigns, grant funding, and corporate and private donations. It provides struggling families with financial assistance and support programs that address food insecurity, childhood literacy and healthcare access.
