Founded in 2001 with over 350+ members year-to-year, we are celebrating our 20th Anniversary.
Our mission is:
Our event filled year includes:
Since 2014, the primary charity that UPWC’s Outreach has supported has been Just for Girls Elementary, which is an alternative school under the auspices of Manatee Country. The school has kindergarten through fifth grade, and most of the girls are from low-income families and need leadership and guidance in life, in addition to focused learning. During those eight years almost $70,000 and hundreds of volunteer hours supported activities at JFGE. Additionally, $6,500 was donated to Mothers Helping Mothers and Manatee Food Bank. Each year we review the many organizations in our area and decide how best to focus our Outreach efforts. The two charities that will be supported this year are HOPE Family Services, Manatee County’s only domestic abuse shelter and Bradenton Police Care Card Program, a new charity never done in Manatee County that provides $25 Publix gift cards for the Bradenton Police Department to give to citizens in need. There will be volunteer opportunities with HOPE that will be explored and communicated to our membership.
