UCP is happy to work with you to provide promotional templates for flyers and posters and consult to provide maximum exposure for your clothing drive.

Many corporations eagerly embrace clothing donations as a team-building or Spring Cleaning exercise that involves a minimum time commitment from staff. In most cases, all it takes is approval from Human Resources, a date and a series of email reminders to staff. UCP will provide a pick up on the day of your event.
