United Community Bank financial adviser Jay Burkett recently supported a local nonprofit, Woodlands Camp, with a $500 donation. Burkett was randomly selected at a sales and service luncheon, an award ceremony that recognizes branch teams and individuals for outstanding performance and commitment to service. Burkett was named top financial adviser during the fourth
quarter of 2016.

“I am honored to be selected as top financial adviser and grateful to have the opportunity to support an organization of my choice with this donation,” Burkett said. “I admire the efforts of Woodlands Camp, and believe its mission of inspiring our youth is gratifying and important to our community.”

Located in the foothills of North Georgia, Woodlands Camp is a faith-based camp in Cleveland for junior, middle and high school students that also provides weeklong retreats for all ages throughout the year. The camp currently hosts nearly 3,000 youth through its summer camps each summer. Woodlands also has a retreat center available to private groups during the spring, fall and winter season each year.

Burkett is based in Cleveland but also serves the North Georgia region in Gainesville, Murrayville and Oakwood.
