United Heritage Charity Foundation gives $20,000 to support resources for seniors

The United Heritage Credit Union’s Charity Foundation partners with Senior Access

AUSTIN, TX (March 4, 2022) — The United Heritage Charity Foundation is strengthening its relationships with charitable organizations, ensuring that they align towards a specific core area of focus. Every year, the Charity Foundation focuses its giving on organizations that support communities in the Austin, Texas, and Tyler, Texas areas where its parent organization, United Heritage Credit Union, has a presence. In 2022, the United Heritage Charity Foundation will support four organizations as a business partner through amplifying and promoting their mission and common area of focus.

In quarter one, the United Heritage Charity Foundation will work with Senior Access, a local organization that assists seniors over the age of 60 by providing transportation and essential services. Founded in 1993, Senior Access currently supports over 1,300 senior clients located in the Round Rock, Pflugerville, Hutto, East Austin, and Manor areas of Central Texas. The organization connects volunteer drivers with seniors to take them to doctor appointments, go grocery shopping, and other helpful services. Throughout January to March of 2022, both groups have come together to share a cohesive message that is tied to human services and promotes elderly assistance. The Charity Foundation believes it is crucial to take care of those from earlier generations who now need assistance in their daily lives as they are our connection to the past.

“The Charity Foundation considered several organizations before selecting Senior Access as their business partner for quarter one of 2022,” United Heritage Charity Foundation Chairman May Lofgreen said. “I have watched them grow from starting in the Round Rock area to the many other areas in and around Austin that they now serve.  They have a well-run operation and provide services for seniors that are in need while quietly keeping a close watch on those that they serve.”

The mission of the United Heritage Charity Foundation is to support projects and organizations within local communities. More than 2 million in donations has been distributed, not including in-kind gifts, given to local charities. The Charity Foundation’s top priority is contributing to deserving organizations that positively impact Central and East Texas to make a difference in people’s lives
