Community Unity Program LTD; C.U.P. is all about supporting our communities. From time to time we may have to adjust our programs to support the current needs of our respective communities.
Currently in the midst of the global pandemic, we feel the need to give back to those who've given so much of themselves to our society. Senior Citizens are very valuable to our communities because they have always been the backbone to many programs by donating their time or financially.
By seniors volunteering their time and wisdom. They have been productive in many nonprofit initiatives as they have valuable experience. If they can't physically give back, they support in other ways.
We want a chance to protect them for a change. Many times they are excluded or discarded from getting the assistance they need. With the reports of the abuse and mishandling of care from nursing homes, and various hospitals across the country, we want to help in any way we can to give them a fighting chance of surviving, and also navigating through this pandemic and beyond.
That's where our donors and volunteers come in! We need your help raising funds to provide devices to help our elderly who still live home. Whether with their spouse, a loved one, or by themselves. We want to provide an extra layer of protection to give them the security they need to continue to go about their lives with minimal limitations.
We also need your help with donating masks and cleaning products to help us continue to flatten the curve for our loved ones. We will have virtual events for assembling kits as well as in-person (socially distanced) events for distributing the masks and other products.
2 Assist U’s goal is to help as many parents and students with a portion of the mounting expenses during the school year. We want to assist as many families as possible. We want to give the parents and students an opportunity to select from choices like graduation expenses (yearbook, senior fees, prom tickets, etc. to name a few).
We will assist with a portion of extracurricular activity fees (sports equipment or dues, art supplies, band instruments, etc.) We will also have a summer school fee assistance program.
2 assist U will select each eligible student based on need. All information will be verified.
No cash will be issued.
Each selected recipient will receive a 2 Assist U voucher or a 2 Assist U gift card to use towards the selected program or item listed in the menu of their choice.
We want to reach as many participants as possible.
Each eligible student will receive a voucher or gift certificate to assist an item from the menu of their choice. Even if you have more than one child, and your family is selected, we will help with up to five students registered in school. Our program is open to all students K-12, but are mainly geared towards juniors and seniors. We will also roll out our year-round program to assist with fees for summer camps/programs in the coming months.
Our K-12 program will be accepting donations for school supplies year-round. We will also accept used, but in great condition laptops, tablets, sporting goods, instruments, uniforms, prom dresses, suits, and other items to help students to succeed and have a successful school year.
We want to take obstacles out of the way so your child/children can focus throughout the year and take some of the worry or frustration off of our parents.
Every child should experience and participate in school the way they want. They should be able to participate in any program or event they want. We sometimes as parents don’t always have it all right then, or even at all. That’s where we come in! We want everyone to have a fair shot at going to prom, or participating in band, or sports, or something as simple as having a year book. Prices for our children’s memories are at an all- time high and some things are “just too high”
Menu Selection items
Each student will be able to select from categories. There is a maximum spend per selected student. We want to be able to assist as many students as possible so there is a cap for funding. Our goal is to give away packages throughout the year of different values. This program is run off of donations, so there may be times when funds are limited and others where we are fully funded.
As the program progresses we plan to help students in all 50 states. We plan to have an end of year bash for a selection of students that were selected within that school year.
We have several plans in store as the program picks up that will benefit both parents and students
There is an application process, and all info will be verified. We will plan to work with state and government agencies as needed to verify information.
