Members News

With the help of almost 200 volunteers, UCP of NEPA’s Holiday Gift Wrapping stand in the Viewmont Mall raised $12,074.34 during the 2018 holiday season from November 23 to December 24. Proceeds from the event will benefit Early Intervention (EI) services at UCP of NEPA. EI provides therapy and education support to infants and toddlers with disabilities or developmental delays.

This is UCP of NEPA’s 38th year wrapping presents and their most successful yet. “It is our largest fundraiser of the year,” says Sarah Drob, executive director of UCP of NEPA. “We are very grateful to all our dedicated volunteers, patrons, donors, board of directors, Viewmont Mall and all our community partners for their continued support.” Drob also notes that some volunteers have been with them all 38 years wrapping presents.

In addition to EI, UCP of NEPA services for children include Pennsylvania’s only remaining Lekotek and Compuplay programs. The organization also provides adult day training, residential community and independent living arrangements and assistive technology resources, as well as advocacy through a home services program, for adults with disabilities.

UCP of NEPA is a private, nonprofit agency chartered in 1953 and operated by a volunteer board of directors. The agency provides services to children and adults with disabilities and their families.
