We had so much fun at our 2023 Cinnamon Bear Cruise.
Almost 100 families from UCP Oregon's Family Support Department were able to participate! These families are raising children who experience cerebral palsy or a closely related disability.
On December 2, 2023, they gathered together, with UCP's Holiday Elf in Chief (UCP's Executive Director, Ann Coffey) on the Portland Spirit.
They enjoyed a festive boat ride down the Willamette River, partaking in a delicious meal as a cast of fanciful characters entertained the children with holiday-themed storytelling, music and magic.
Thanks to everyone who participated!
PS: It's not too late to sponsor a child, a family... or even several families! Donate below.
Dear UCP Community,
It’s December. Brrr!
This month, as the holidays arrive, the UCP Oregon community is celebrating in many ways. Some of us are sharing culture and traditions with family and friends. Others are engaged in spiritual practices, or pausing for a mindful moment. Others may be struggling with grief or other challenges. And many of us are sharing our resources with others in need.
Wherever you find yourself this season, know that UCP Oregon is holding you in our hearts.
As 2023 draws to a close, we’d also like to express our gratitude to the entire UCP Oregon community. Our customers. Our employees. The families and caregivers. Our dedicated volunteers, including our Board of Directors, task force members, and workgroup participants. And many more. We couldn’t do it without you!
Wishing you a joyful holiday season, and a new year filled with health, hope and happiness.
