Hand Up Orlando Campaign @ Virtual!
Oct 5 @ 12:00 am – Nov 6 @ 11:59 pm
Hand Up Orlando Campaign @ Virtual!
Traditionally United Against Poverty hosts our largest fundraising event, the Hand Up Luncheon, on the first Friday of October every year. Unfortunately, we will not be hosting an in person luncheon this year, but we still need your help.

We are putting our full resources behind assisting our community and there are a couple of ways you can help lift lives UP of those in need in our community.

  1. Become a Hand Up Hero by registering today. Our Hand Up Heroes will create an online fundraising page, spread the love for United Against Poverty digitally through your own personal testimony, as well as updates from us, and invite their family, friends, and colleagues to contribute financially if they feel so moved. We hope you will put on the cape and answer the call to action.
  2. Make a general donation, whether that’s one time or on a recurring basis. General donations are put to use where the need is greatest, and they ensure we can continue to operate at full capacity and serve more than 500 people a day on our Michigan St. campus.
United Against Poverty relies on individual donations to provide services to those in need. With your continued support, our team will provide services for all of the people that we can, in all of the ways that we can, for as long as we can.

We cannot do this without you!
