UCIP of Crawford County had a tragic fire last fall. This caused uncertainty of where the clients, staff and administration would relocate to.

Disheartenment happened. Immediate financial assistance was needed. Many answered the call.

As a former employee of UCIP, I would like to show appreciation to those who stepped up, helped with prize donations, volunteered and helped financially.

On Nov. 23, a UCIP Rubber Ducky race was to be held at Bicentennial Park on French Creek. Unfortunately we were unaware that Woodcock Dam had been released into French Creek, causing the current to be too strong for the netting. The creek was deemed too dangerous to hold the race. So an alternate method was used in Bicentennial Park. We appreciate all who volunteered and donated.

I have been asked if there will be another UCIP Rubber Ducky Race. The answer is yes. The next race will be in warmer weather. As I write this, a committee is being formed to organize this event.

UCIP still very much needs your help, whether financially, by volunteering or donating items. As Mr. Rogers said, "There are always helpers."

UCIP has employed many in our community, served multiple clients who most definitely deserve the equal opportunities given to them. Be that helper!
