Union Makes A Difference In Communities Across The Nation

The Holiday Season is here and Union staff and faculty are busy pitching in to make a difference in communities across the nation.

Adopt a Family and Toy Drive – The Los Angeles Academic Center is taking on three projects this holiday season. Staff provided Thanksgiving meals for families at the Women Shelter of Long Beach, a local women’s shelter, and received these thank you cards from grateful personnel.

The team is also participating in a toy drive and will be visiting the local children’s hospital with gifts in tow in the near future.

Family in Crisis – The Sacramento Academic Center is adopting a family through the Saint John’s Program for Real Change to bring joy to a family that is working towards independence and self-sustainability.

Help for Children and Their Families – The Cincinnati Academic Center is making donations to St. Joseph Orphanage, a comprehensive behavioral health and educational treatment agency that helps children and their families on the road to recovery and success.

Food Drive – The Florida Academic Center partnered with the Jubilee Center of South Broward and Ray of Hope Ministries providing Thanksgiving meal items for families in the Hollywood area.

The UI&U staff is focused this holiday season on reaching out and giving back to its communities and staying true to the mission of transforming lives and communities.
