Giving a little extra help to local families for Christmas
Every year, UPPC partners with Families Unlimited Network and local schools to provide gifts and food to economically struggling families in our community. This year, UPPC is collecting donations to provide families a set of gift cards along with a bag/box of non-perishable food and a frozen turkey or ham that from the food bank at Families Unlimited Network. Volunteer and donation opportunities are listed below.
Make a financial donation designated for Community Christmas by December 5!
Every $100 donated to UPPC's Community Christmas fund provides a family of four a set of gift cards they can use to purchase Christmas gifts and other items for their family this Christmas. Because of your generosity, last year we were able to provide gift cards to nearly 200 families and provide a little extra to some families who had extra large needs. We anticipate this year's need to be the same or greater. Let's see what we can do this Christmas to meet some of the tangible needs in our community.
