UCM exceeded its goal to raise $10,000 and collect 1,000 backpacks for the children and youth in UCM’s programs. Each backpack contains approximately $40 worth of school supplies. Student volunteers put the final touches on the remaining backpacks to be donated to needy students in the Route 1 Corridor.
