Philanthropic Activities and News

UMAPP Connects . . .  

Activities by UMAPP members to give back to the community or simply join together for a fun day.

On December 5, 2016, our new committee called "UMAPP Connects" hosted its first event! A group of dedicated volunteers packed meals for individuals in Haiti at the Feed My Starving Children facility in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The UMAPP Connects committee is newly-formed in 2016 and it CONNECTS members of the promotional products industry with activities near and dear to our members' hearts. These events might be organized by UMAPP, but most likely one of our members and UMAPP helps get the word out for everyone who might be interested.

Many thanks to these individuals for helping those in Haiti: Paula Coomer, Ruth Ann Pederson, Michelle Altobelli, Ann Harty, Dawn Lucchesi, Bob Engh, Dave Malek, Chris Thies, Tom Donlin, Carter Sharp, and Devin Martin.  View the photos.


 

Charity Donations by UMAPP 

Each year, UMAPP donates up to $500 to various causes suggested by our members.  If there is a charity or need that is near and dear to your heart, send us an EMAIL so we can add it to the list for consideration.  The Board of Directors reviews suggestions and votes on one or more causes to donate funds to each year. 

 

 

UMAPP's first donation of 2017 was awarded to the Bennett Clayton Foundation.  

"Working to enhance the lives of children and families living with Osteogenesis Imperfecta."
