Turkeys for Thanksgiving:
The sharing of a Thanksgiving meal
with family & friends is a US tradition. Every November, UCM helps
Jackson County families celebrate by providing turkeys. Gift
certificates for a free turkey from a local grocery store will be made
available at UCM beginning November 16 through November 222.
If you would like to help a local family celebrate Thanksgiving, please make a monetary donation marked "turkeys" to UCM by November 10. Our goal is 150 turkey gift certificates! Thank you in advance!
Winter Break Food Bags for Famileis with School-Age Children:
UCM will be providing reusable shopping bags filled with child friendly food items to Jackson County school aged children whose families need food assistance over the end of the year break. If your family would like to receive a bag, please talk with your child's school social worker. If you would like to donate food items for the bags, please call UCM to see what items are still needed. Monetary donations are also encouraged to purchase needed food.
