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.
Collaboration is a key component of our mission. At United Against Poverty of Indian River County, we advocate a “more is more” approach. We believe that the more agencies we can partner with and the more services and resources we can make available on-site, the more we can help those who are hidden, hungry and hurting in this community.
In 2015 we made 1,376 active referrals to partner agencies so that people in crisis could access the services they needed to stabilize their lives. These services included: healthcare, domestic violence counseling, mental health support, utility payoff relief, employment placement, education, senior services, veterans assistance, and child care.
Through these partnerships, we can maximize our impact and better reach and serve those in need in this community. If you are interested in becoming a Provider Partner, please contact Executive Director Annabel Robertson at: Annabel@unitedagainstpoverty.org
