SPRINGDALE, AR, July 15, 2020– United Bank announced today that United Bank and United Built Homes have partnered together and committed $25,000 to the Northwest Arkansas Food Bank’s COVID-19 Relief Fund. The funds will provide meals to help ensure no one in Northwest Arkansas goes without a meal.

With more COVID-19 cases than any other part of the state, Northwest Arkansas continues to manage the outbreak’s impacts. “Now, more than ever, we need to unify and help those in need during this crisis. This unprecedented situation has added strain on the area’s food banks, and it’s important that we support these critical lifelines,” says Nathan Gairhan, President & CEO of United Bank.

Northwest Arkansas Food Bank is a nonprofit organization located in Bethel Heights whose mission is to nourish Northwest Arkansas communities by feeding the more than 65,000 people in the region who are in need.
