UP GROCERY ANNOUNCES ADJUSTMENT OF HOURS RELATED TO THE CORONAVIRUS

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.

Volunteer Spotlight: Hilton

Team Members take Hilton’s innovation and influence to communities to drive positive change. During Hilton’s annual Global Week of Service, more than 65 volunteers from six Orlando area Hilton Properties partnered with United Against Poverty Orlando. For nearly 100 years, Hilton has seen a world that can be made better through genuine hospitality. The efforts of the Orlando area Hilton Team Members are a part of Hilton’s week-long celebration recognizing the company’s year-round commitment to serving and enriching the communities where Team Members live, work and travel.

“One of our key purposes at Hilton is to serve and support our community. I was so excited to learn about an organization that helps to empower families to lift themselves out of poverty by providing job skills training, medical services and necessary essentials such as a grocery store program that helps build self-esteem and financial independence,” said Glen Winsor, General Manager at the Hilton Bonnet Creek. “There is truly nothing like this and I knew the opportunity to support United Against Poverty and the Orlando community would align perfectly with our Hilton purpose and values. Thank you for the great work you are doing and we look forward to more opportunities to partner and serve with United Against Poverty.”
