12 Gifts of Unison – Help Area Nonprofits This November

12 gifts of unison

This summer, we partnered with Unison Credit Union to share their Splish Splash Bash family events that happened throughout July. It was an incredible series of events celebrating summer, family, and community. This November, Unison Credit Union is once again celebrating its community with the 12 Gifts of Unison.

“The 12 Gifts of Unison program is one small way Unison can give back and thank area nonprofit groups during the holiday season,” Unison Credit Union President and CEO Mark Hietpas said. “We also hope this program will increase awareness of how these worthwhile organizations make a difference in our communities.”

You can help Unison make a difference for twelve nonprofits in our communities by voting for your favorite by Noon on Saturday, November 30. Click on this link to go directly to their website for voting.
