If you’ve been following UCP Oregon news, you’ll know that we’ve been doing various doll sale fundraisers this spring, thanks to a very generous anonymous donor who donated her one-hundred-year-old doll collection.
As a last hurrah, we’ll be having a final UCP Oregon Doll Sale in June. We’ll have lots of exciting bargains on:
Come check it out! All offers will be considered! And, don’t forget: all proceeds benefit UCP.
FINAL UCP OREGON DOLL SALE:
It's not too late to join UCP at the May 12th Portland Thorns game!
Alas, all of our $5 tickets are gone, and so are the free event bandanas, but you can still get half-price tickets, and all the funds raised will go to UCP's Family Support Department!
Breaking news--we have only 60 tickets left for UCP's special Thorns game fundraiser, which is happening May 12th!
Your ticket comes with the cool bandana shown!
Do you love the Portland Thorns? Do you love UCP? Do you love cool free stuff?
Then you'll be excited to here that the first 200 people to register for UCP's upcoming Portland Thorns/UCP fundraiser will receive a FREE, one-of-a-kind bandana!
We have a couple of exciting announcements about the 2018 UCP Friends Breakfast.
EVENT THEME: "Pursuing Passionate Purpose"
First of all, the theme will be “Pursuing Passionate Purpose.” This theme is inspired by the life and legacy of Bill Porter (1932-2013) – a Portlander who experienced cerebral palsy. He was an award-winning salesman, son, and friend… and an accidental icon.
Despite being told he was unemployable, Bill was one of The Watkin’s Company’s most successful door-to-door salesman. Bill’s determination to just go to work, pay his bills, and take care of his family caught the attention of a writer at The Oregonian. Next, he appeared on ABC’s 20/20 and TNT released a made for television movie about him (Door to Door).
Bill wasn’t looking for attention; instead, he was pursuing his purpose and in doing so, he created a legacy that will benefit others in our community for years to come.
We will also be sharing other stories of people in our community who are passionately pursuing their purpose.
Keynote Speaker: UCP Mom and City Commissioner, Chloe Eudaly
Guess what! UCP is excited to announce that Neighborhood Waves is coming back!
Here’s the lowdown… Every few months, UCP spends two months focusing on a particular neighborhood, encouraging the people we support, our staff, and our supporters to explore that neighborhood. It's an awesome chance for our customers to get to know new neighborhoods--and for companies to get to know our customers!
In February and March of 2018, we’re exploring Sellwood/Westmoreland. See more here.
You’re also encouraged to check out UCP’s booth at the Stars & Splendid antique mall. Thanks to a very generous anonymous donor, we’re selling a 100-year-old doll collection, with all of the proceeds going to UCP. The event runs now through February 20th, 11am to 6pm every day at Stars & Splendid, 7030 SE Milwaukie Avenue Portland, OR 97214. Learn more here or here http://starsantique.com/UCPOregon.

Did you know that a very generous anonymous donor gave UCP a one-hundred-year-old doll collection? Well, she did! And thanks to her generosity, UCP supporters have the chance to purchase vintage and antique dolls to raise funds for UCP, at two different Portland-area venues.
And thank you again to the anonymous donor for sharing your amazing doll collection with UCP!
This October, UCP held our first-ever “Mini” Family Conference—a one-day conference designed for families who experience cerebral palsy.
We’re pleased to report that the Mini Conference was a hit! Attendees said that it was, “absolutely wonderful and extremely informative,” “just the right size,” and that they “felt very included and together.”
