About The University National Bank’s Quarterly Giving Program: Each quarter, UNB selects a local charity they wish to support. Throughout the quarter, a community bulletin board displays information about the charity and UNB employees collect donations from customers and community members. In addition, UNB staff contributes donations by hosting several “Jeans Days.” At the end of the quarter, a check for the lump sum of the donations is presented to the charity and the members of the organization have the opportunity to tell the staff more about its efforts, goals, and additional philanthropic opportunities.
