Can you help? DC Homeless need your support!

Global Bonus Day Campaign 2018                                                      Wednesday September 12th – Thurday September 13th

Join us for a GlobalGiving First. A Bonus Day that will be running for 33 hours! Help UPO Help the DC Homeless will be guaranteed a Proportional Match of a $50,000 incentive fund from GlobalGiving that will be shared based on the amount of funds we raise during the alloted time.

There are nearly 7,500 homeless people in Washington, DC!  UPO's Shelter Hotline transports these unforunate souls to shelters during severe and extreme weather. Throughout the year, our drivers also distribute comfort items, including water, protective clothing, feminine products, and food trays to the homeless.

Althought we have experienced sweltering heat during thes past few weeks of September, fall commences next week and soon after that the severe cold of winter will again be upon us. Shelter Hotline has aked us to please raise $4,000 during the next 6 weeks, to insure there is adequate funding for protective clothing and comfort items for the winter months.

When was the last time you made a donation to Help UPO Help the DC Homeless? 

In addition to the Global Bonus Day incentive, an anonymous donor has offered to match any repeat donation received during the 33 hour Campaign from any donor who has not made a donation to this poject during the past 6 months. If this applies to you your gift can make a significant difference in the lives of the DC homeles. Each gift will be matched at 100% and go twice as far in helping DC's homeless!

We thank you sincerely for your generous past support.

We invite you to continue your support of UPO’s                                      mission of "uniting people with opportunities
