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.

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.
The Annual Hand UP Luncheon is our most important fundraising event of the year and volunteers are needed to host tables to ensure the event is well attended. The Luncheon is a valuable opportunity for the St. Lucie UP Center to be a voice for the families we serve every day, while educating friends and neighbors about the challenges we face as a community. The luncheon includes a complimentary lunch followed by a program filled with must-hear stories from our members, eye-opening statistics, and meaningful ways we can join together to move the needle on poverty in this community.
As a Table Captain, you are asked to fill a table with 8-10 people, including yourself by personally* inviting those in your network to join you at your table for the luncheon. Inviting your contacts to the event to learn more about the work of United Against Poverty increases the potential for building additional support in the community for the mission. You will have invitations that you will write in your name at the top, so that each invitee will receive a formal invitation that is personalized. It is likely that you will need to invite 15 people to ensure that you table is filled.
Our 2019 Hand Up Luncheon event will take place on October 14th at 11:55am at Pelican Yacht Club in Fort Pierce
