On Thursday, October 25, 2018, Unique People Services (UPS) will celebrate our 27th Anniversary Gala at Marina Del Ray in the Bronx. This milestone event is vital in supporting our mission of providing homes and comprehensive support service to people with special needs, helping to raise awareness for hundreds of business owners and friends of UPS who share our vision to transform lives. Our gala theme, “A Celebration of Unique People,” will once again encapsulate the important work that we do and the hundreds of lives we touch each year.
Proceeds from this year’s event will support our programs and initiatives that are ineligible for government funding, such as UPS’ Art Program, which is staffed by volunteers. Funds raised will help to secure necessary supplies and materials, enabling individuals with developmental disabilities to express themselves through art.
Another program that would continue to benefit from this year’s donations is our food pantry which serves people living with HIV/AIDS. UPS currently receives city council discretionary funds to purchase food to provide supplemental healthy choices for these individuals. We annually serve between over 2400 people. UPS has recently partnered with the NY Food Bank to be able to purchase even more food that is distributed in the community.
Through the generosity of our friends and donors, UPS is able to further our reach within our programs and throughout the community. We appreciate your partnership in helping to make this critical endeavor possible.
Please be advised that the 2018 Unique People Services 27th Anniversary Gala is a 21+ event.
