The participants in the Quaker Hill day program received the best gift ever today when they were visited by Saxophone Santa (aka Kevin McMahon.) He entertained us with christmas carols and jovial laughter!
Santa will be returning to UCP for the Residential Program’s Holiday Party and he will be stopping in to visit with participants in the Old Saybrook day program. Thank you Saxophone Santa for stopping in.
United Cerebral Palsy of Eastern CT is a United Way agency! This means that you can designate a portion of your paycheck to UCP of Eastern CT through payroll deduction during the United Way campaign. Even a little bit a week adds up to make real change in your community.
Here’s How You Can Help:
1. Invite a UCP representative to speak at your company’s United Way Campaign. We would love to share stories and photos of our participants and staff working together every day to live a life without limits.
2. Designate your United Way Gift to UCPECT! When you designate your United Way contributions to UCP, you are helping those with disabilities live life without limits!
Every little bit helps!
If your company doesn’t have a United Way campaign, call us now to find out about making your own designation. Call (860)443-3800 for more information.
