Also on hand was striker Marc McNulty, who scored the winner which saw the Blades defeat Southampton and progress to the semi-finals of the Capital One Cup just hours before.
Blades supporters had donated in excess of 500 gifts before the Southampton game and these were handed over along with Blades merchandise, before the players helped out in the charity’s warehouse.
Tajinder Singh and Harminder Bains, fellow director of Winchester Car Sales, had helped the cause by providing funding and support for the players to visit the organisations and deliver gifts, as well as donating a van which was used to transport gifts on the day.
Tajinder said: “It was wonderful to be involved with Sheffield United’s community visit day and I am delighted to have helped give something back.
