ORMOND BEACH, Fla. - Oct. 4, 2021 - PRLog -- OurSeniors.net Magazine, a Florida-based senior living magazine and resource directory, has welcomed United Against Poverty (UAP) as an Approved Vendor. United Against Poverty is a nonprofit organization that focuses on helping lift people out of poverty by providing access to basic needs, nutritional food, crisis care, education, and employment training, so they can achieve a future filled with hope and possibilities.

Chief Executive Officer, Gwendolyn Butson says, "We believe in our purpose, which is to inspire and empower people living in poverty to lift themselves and their families to economic self-sufficiency through the hand up philosophy." The philosophy is modeled after the saying, "Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime".

The organization thrives on its community involvement with year-round fundraisers, volunteer nights, and events. Seniors can get involved by lending their free time and resources. Volunteer Coordinator, Madeline, is always looking for new people to help in the Grocery Program, around the Life Enrichment Center, and for individual events as well. She is reachable at uporlando.org/volunteer. The most notable fundraisers during the year are Hopeful Harvest in November, Christmas Mall during the holiday season, and HandUP Orlando in October.

The organization plans to revitalize its two UP Centers in Orange and St. Lucie Counties. They will soon be launching a campaign to raise funds for the redevelopment of the Orlando campus to provide a bright, clean and welcoming space. It will also help increase the educational workshops and provide additional programs and support to the community.
