UPT Children Support Program

Teacher Marc Stein with donations from UPT congregations

Second-grade teacher Marc Stein, School #3, with supplies donated by UPT congregations. He hasn't decided where he will take the children on a field trip with the money gift, probably some place especially related to science and the STEM program.

UPT Churches have connections with a number of programs that help children, for instance:

They all have needs! Money is always scarce, and classroom teachers and program leaders routinely reach into their own pockets to stretch the budget. Parents are hard strapped too, often holding down 2 or 3 jobs just to cover food and rent.

Inspired by the 2013 Poverty Report issued by the Rochester Area Community Foundation, UPT churches are collecting supplies for distribution to classrooms and programs.

During the 2014-15 school year,we funded field trips for 15 classrooms of children at Schools #3 and #35.
