We Need Your Help! Hurricane Irma Emergency Food Relief: Donate Now
As a result of power outages due to Hurricane Irma, millions of Florida families were forced to throw away food. Thankfully, several of our generous Product Partners have pledged 25 truckloads of fresh produce and proteins ready to be delivered to our UP Centers. Unfortunately, the fuel and freight costs to cover these additional shipments will cost our organization $60,575. Please consider making a donation to sponsor a pallet or truckload to help ensure this donated product can make it into the hands of those who need it most during this difficult time.
Product partnerships with major retailers and manufacturers make our hunger relief programs viable and stretch their impact to help us provide crisis intervention and long-term solutions through our educational, job training, and job placement programs for people living in the level of poverty. These programs result in families exiting poverty and achieveing economic self-sufficiency. Donated product does much more than fill stomachs, it literally transforms lives. To become a Product Partner or for more information please contact:
