STEPPING UP TO PREVENT CHILD ABUSE.
We've been fortunate to be able to get involved in our communities and the causes that affect our colleagues and neighbors. For decades we've supported charities, events and fundraising opportunities, and we'll continue to donate our time and resources to our communities. We hope you can join us on future events.
Children's Advocacy Center recognizes that a concern of child abuse can be a crisis for a child and the family, and works to minimize the stress for both through a supportive and comprehensive response. Their Annal Charity Event, "Step Up & Speak Out" brings awareness, recognizes the leaders in this critical cause, and raises the necessary funding for the Center. UMF is proud to be involved as one of the programs Advocate Sponsors.www.SuffolkCAC.org
