The United Way is moving to donated space at the Kimberly-Clark Berkeley Mills facility on Smyth Avenue, the agency announced.The United Way of Henderson County "has accepted a generous donation of office space" that is much larger than its current office. The 5,200-square-foot space will allow the non-profit umbrella agency sufficient room for meetings, trainings, campaign and committee work.
"Melanie Matteson came up with the great idea of donating the unused office space to help United Way of Henderson County. I can't think of a better way to use this space than to help United Way do the great work they do for our community. Plus, we'll have some new neighbors!"
UWHC will lease its offices at 722 Fifth Avenue West to non-profits in need of limited office space. The Fifth Avenue building was donated to UWHC by Hendersonville Pediatrics in 1994.
"United Way has been so fortunate over the years to have strong corporate supporters who understand the infrastructure needs of a non-profit organization," said Mark Morse, UWHC Board Chair. "We are proud to be able to leverage the gift of the Fifth Avenue space by supporting other organizations that are helping Henderson County residents to thrive," Morse added.
The United Way will welcome the community to tour the new headquarters with an open house on Tuesday, June 18.
