During this month, the UCP community will be celebrating in different ways, including cultural, family, secular, and spiritual traditions.
Hanukkah started on Sunday. Winter Solstice occurred this week. Christmas and Kwanza are right around the corner, too. Some folks may not celebrate spiritual or secular occasions in December, and some folks may be grieving or having a tough time.
We are holding you--all of you!--in our hearts. We're thankful for each and every one of you. We couldn't do it without you.
Thanks to everyone at UCP who has helped make this season bright!
See you next year.
The UCP Oregon Office is closed today. It will reopen on Tuesday, December 27th.
Stay warm and safe, everyone. Brrrr!
And thanks to everyone who volunteered, worked or participated in our Annual Toy Giveaway, which ended yesterday. Biggest thanks of all go to Katherine Ball, the Director of UCP's Family Support Department.
Check out these pics from yesterday, which was "Day One" of UCP Oregon's Family Support Annual Toy Giveaway!

Oooh! What a cool video.
Eighteen families from UCP's Family Support Department joined us for the Cinnamon Bear Breakfast cruise on Saturday, December 17th.
It was a beautiful day filled with holiday joy!
Hi, this is Corrie!
It's the holiday season, and many of us are feeling stretched a little thin. So, I wanted to share a free (and easy) way to make a difference... without spending a dime!
Did you know that you can raise money for UCP, simply by shopping?
It's true. Simply select "UCP Oregon" as your charity via Amazon's Smile program, and then use www.smile.amazon.com as your starting point whenever you shop on Amazon. We’ll get a donation every time you shop.
You can raise free money at Fred Meyer's, too!
I've personally raised $61.39 for UCP. It feels great knowing I'm making a difference all year long.
Happy December from UCP Oregon's Family Support Department!
We're excited to announce the 2022 Annual Toy Giveaway. The event will be held on December 21 and 22, from 10am-4pm.
The event is for families who are raising children who experience cerebral palsy or a related disability.
The event will be held indoors this year (instead of in the parking lot like the last two years). However, we will be taking COVID precautions to protect our staff, families and customers.
We'll have lots of toys to choose from, holiday gift bags so you can hide the toy if needed as you leave the building, and cookies and hot chocolate for you to take with you. We can't wait to see you!
