Effective March 19, Member Share Grocery Program hours at our three UP Centers located in Orlando, Indian River County and St. Lucie County will transition to be Monday - Saturday, from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m., with our Orlando and St. Lucie County locations also operating Sundays from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. To streamline our operations to focus on the increased need at our main Indian River UP Center, our satellite grocery program located in South Vero Beach will close at 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 21.

As we continue to focus on serving the community during this increased time of need, our programs remain available to low-income families.

In stressful situations, many of our neighbors turn to United Against Poverty for information, direction and reassurance. Now more than ever, we are deeply grateful for your support.

Thank You, Tommy!

Tommy Beck has been a longtime advocate of United Against Poverty, faithfully serving on our Board of Directors for the past 10 years. For much of that time he fulfilled the crucial role of Development Chair, where he introduced countless new supporters to our mission and ensured the gifts entrusted to UP Orlando were always put to work in the most effective way possible. While he continues to remain active with our mission, Tommy retired from his committee chair position earlier this year, passing the torch to fellow Board Member Jeff Chandler to lead development efforts.
“Tommy Beck has selflessly devoted his time, wisdom and heart to our mission for more than a decade,” says Executive Director Eric Gray. “His steadfast and thoughtful leadership helped navigate us through both tough decisions and times of growth. His efforts have impacted the lives of nearly a half a million working poor families, and will be a lasting legacy for generations to come.”
Thank you, Tommy, for your continued dedication!
Correction: In the print newsletter, it was said Tommy Beck is retiring from the Board of Directors. He is still faithfully serving as a Board Member for the organization. He is retiring his chair position.
