Helping Kids in Need with Operation Backpack
Being a part of Ulster County means something to us. We want to give back to a community that gives so much to us. With that said, back to school season is right around the corner!
Every year our own Community Service Committee helps to rally the troops in gathering school supplies needed for the upcoming school year to help the region’s homeless youth population. We’re looking for your help in donating supplies (from backpacks and pencils to clorox wipes and crayons) to help kids in need. If you are not able to donate but still want to help, feel free to share our flyer with more information on Operation Backpack below.
For more information or any questions on Operation Backpack, please contact Sheena Lepez at (845) 616-2509.
The UCBR team is proud to be actively involved in our community. We’ve supported the Ulster County Warming Shelter, the Homeless Transition Center at the Clinton Avenue Methodist Church, Community Action of Ulster County, Ulster County Literacy, and the Woodstock-area Meals on Wheels program. We honor our Veterans by contributing to Patriots Place, a temporary shelter and rehabilitation facility for homeless veterans. We lead the Clean Trails Project, to help clean and maintain the network of rail trails throughout our county. These are just a handful of examples of how we help give back to Ulster County. You can find more information on our community service here.
We look forward to you joining us in giving back to this beautiful community. Don’t forget to share your adventures with us on social media (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter). We’re always excited to see how others are also getting involved and spreading kindness, no matter how big or small the gesture. The more love we pour into our community, the bigger and better it grows. Cheers!
