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.
