Northeast Community Credit Union presented a $500 donation to the United Way of Elizabethton/Carter County and Johnson County as part of their annual partnership with the non-profit agency.

The United Way relies on community donations to provide assistance to thousands of individuals through partnerships with other non-profit community organizations.

These partnerships include Boys and Girls Club of Elizabethton/Carter County, Assistance and Resources Ministries, Elizabethton Senior Citizens Center, 211 Contact Ministries, Adult Day Services, American Red Cross, Elizabethton Neighborhood Service Center, Personal Support Services, and the Boy Scouts Sequoyah Council.

United Way Director Crystal Carter said it was community efforts that kept the United Way campaign on track. NCCU’s donation will be used to help fund literacy projects sponsored by the Boys and Girls Club of Elizabethton/Carter County in the United Way of Elizabethton/Carter County and Johnson County service area.
