GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past 8 years, this idea has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.  UCP WORK, Inc. is joining the GivingTuesday movement and encouraging the community to join us on Tuesday, December 1st, 2020, for a GivingTuesday Gift Drive

As you know, the disability community has been hit the hardest during the pandemic, with restrictions on in-person services and limitations on access to community-based activities.  For GivingTuesday, we are accepting in-kind gifts of art supplies, beading kits, knitting yarn, rainbow looms, adults activity and coloring books, and Amazon Fire tablets, so that the 400+ individuals we serve, can have access to a variety of enrichment opportunities from the safety of their homes.

For a completely contactless way to contribute for GivingTuesday, visit https://a.co/1iUO1rL

Your generous contribution will help enhance the lives of our participants while they take remote enrichment classes from their homes, and most importantly, will help decrease any feelings of isolation during this uncertain time.  All donations are tax-deductible.
