“The holidays are stressful enough, and so many families right here in our community have been impacted by loss of job or worse, loss of a loved one due to the pandemic,” stated Vicki Hoyos, Development Director. “We need to be able to meet these families where they’re at so they can get to higher ground and experience a little extra hope this holiday season.”The event included client stories, testimonials, and an overview of the four core programs that United Against Poverty utilizes to help families break the cycle of poverty. Listeners were asked to get involved with the charity either through donating to the event or to consider volunteering during the holidays. Sponsors of this one-of-a-kind telethon style event included presenting sponsor Sweeties Diner, phone bank sponsor Unified Technology Solutions, the Wawa Foundation, Gander RV, St. Lucie Draft House, G. Alan Fine Jewelers, McGarr Insurance, Dream Flyers and NisAir.
