Complete Care Chief Revenue Officer Brent Williams and UP Orlando's Executive Director Eric Gray

During the recent crisis that has caused so many in Central Florida and across the country to lose their jobs, the need for UP Orlando's services is greater than ever and their ability to provide is getting stretched to the limit with the increased demand. Complete Care's Chief Revenue Officer Brent Williams was able to get much needed supplies of hand sanitzer to the UP Orlando Member Grocery Center. The Member Grocery Center is continuing to operate six days per week and has seen demand for help increase dramatically as unemployment continues to rise in Central Florida.

"The community has stepped up in a big way to help support our mission during this time. Complete Care has been a trusted partner and any time we have asked for help, they have been there." - Eric Gray, Executive Director United Against Poverty Orlando

UP's Member Grocery Center is a dignified food and household assistance program where shoppers can personally select the nutritious food items their family needs. To qualify to shop at UP's Member Grocery Center, families who are living in the 200% or below Federal Poverty Level must fill out an application. Upon qualification, they receive a free Member Card and are able to shop in the center just as they would any other grocery store. The center is 100% supported by donations and is able to offer groceries to qualified families at a greatly reduced price helping them extend their shopping dollars further than shopping in other locations.

UP Orlando operates three different Member Grocery Centers in Orlando, Indian River County, and St. Lucie County. They had adjusted their hours during this crisis to be Monday - Saturday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. with the Orlando and St. Lucie County locations also operating on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Social distancing protocols are in place at the locations and additional sanitation procedures to ensure the safety of staff and members who are shopping.

The huge increase in demand has caused a huge increase in need as well. If you are interested in helping UP Orlando with their mission, visit their donation page here to help support a great mission.
