I am fortunate to receive donations of gently used Durable Medical Equipment from residents and families here at Bethany Village when they no longer need them. It's wonderful to have a program like Changing Hands at UCP where I know these items will be refurbished and distributed to clients in the community who greatly benefit from them. I am glad to partner with Jackie Wardle and her team to make this happen.

I believe in this charity because a large part of my donation is used to provide services directly to individuals who receive services. This organization operates so effeciently, and with a published overhead of only 8%, I am confident that my donation is put to good use. I appreciate the fact that UCP provides services to people with all types of disabilities and conditions, and all ages of people. Therefore, I know my money will be used where the need is greatest, and I will not have to make the determination on my own who has the most need.
