Each month the “weekly pouch” is split with a local organization or group which supports the “serve human need” portion of our UCM mission. Last year UCM donated a over $15,000 to these various groups. Organizations that have been helped include Planting Hope, CVRAN, UCM Community Lunch, Good Samaritan Haven, Migrant Justice, Boyz and Girls First, Peoples Health and Wellness, Friends of the Winooski River, Just Basics, Circle, Outright Vermont, Good Beginnings, Another Way, OUR House, Have Justice Will Travel, Central Vermont Community Harvest, and Days for Girls International. During the past few years the youth have also chosen an organization during the their annual meeting. These include CAMP!, Vermont Therapy Dogs and Green Up Vermont.
Organizations are selected in September of each year.
