UWPC July Month of Caring


In Lieu of our Annual Day of Caring, We're Collecting

Donation items for Kit Packs During the Month of July to Help Those in Need!

We’re continuing to work hard to meet the needs of our community and due to the pandemic, we’ve replaced our annual Day of Caring with a new way for our community to come together and help our most vulnerable residents during this time of great need.  Together we can make a difference. 

How You Can Help:

Collect and donate items from one or more of the drives below and drop-off on Wednesday, July 29th from 2:00pm–5:00pm at UWPC - 999 E. Main St., Ravenna, OH 44266 (rear parking lot). This Drive-Thru Donation Drop-off will be made COVID-19 safe, as volunteers will be on hand to unload donations from your vehicle.
