This Fall I am putting on a cape and becoming a Hand Up Hero. Traditionally United Against Poverty is able to host their largest annual fundraiser, the Hand Up Luncheon, in the fall. This year for everyone's health and wellbeing they are unable to do so. I am stepping up as a Hand Up Hero for their new Hand Up Orlando campaign and I need your help!
This campaign benefits United Against Poverty Orlando, a nonprofit that helps lift working poor and low income families to self-sufficiency. UP Orlando is not a traditional food bank or soup kitchen. Their programs focus on teaching empowerment to help our struggling neighbors break free from the cycle of poverty. Their campus located at 150 W. Michigan Street has earned recognition as the busiest single-site social service agency in the state of Florida, serving an average of 525 families each day.
I hope you will join me in helping UP Orlando lead community-driven programs that produce deep and lasting change. Please consider making a donation by clicking the Donate Now button on the right side of the page. The next time you pull up to an intersection and see an individual asking for a hand out, you can feel pride in knowing that your donation made to UP Orlando is part of something bigger in this community.
