The UCBMA also sponsors various local charity events such as the West Chester/Liberty Rotary’s BBQ Festival, Sharon Woods Holiday in Lights and Empty Bowls.  This year they have voted to support Caring Community Collaborative’s 4 initiatives throughout 2016 that will again support the Empty Bowls occasion.

So far this past year, with grants and sponsorships, the UCBMA has given out over $30k to other organizations including Give Hope, Bicycle Recycle, Reach Out Lakota, Edge Teen Center, One Way Farm, Free Throw for Kids, Maureen L. Fritsch Cancer Fund, Shared Harvest, and Heroes’ Fund.  This year’s UCBMA Food Truck Rally (August 12, 2016) will benefit Sojourner Recovery Services.

UCBMA organizes the annual Union Centre Food Truck Rally and supports events such as the Shamrock Shuffle and the First Financial Concert Series. Funds are raised at these events that UCBMA then grants and does sponsorships out to area charitable organizations. Each month the group awards a grant in the amount of $250- $1,000.
