UCT held its 2018 convention in Savannah, Georgia

Established in 1733, Savannah is the oldest city in Georgia and the location of one of the largest National Historic Landmark districts in the U.S. This eccentric Southern city beguiles with Old World glamour, culture, and entertainment. This, along with Savannah’s stunning architecture, 22 historic squares and Low Country landscape, make the city a top travel destination.

2018 convention service project to help Savannah’s inner city children

UCT members help Urban Hope

UCT makes sure good causes in and around our convention host cities know that we are the place where community and compassion unite by showing our support for local charities and organizations. This year’s convention service project was collecting needed items for Savannah’s Urban Hope, a nonprofit, nondenominational ministry serving Savannah’s urban inner city children and youth.

Members were asked to help support this worthy cause by donating much-needed items like gift cards, scotch tape, wet wipes, hand sanitizers, Kleenex, sharpies, pens, pencils and scissors to Urban Hope’s after school and summer programs. As always, members outdid themselves by contributing nearly 10 boxes of items and more than $4,000 to the center. Thank you, UCT members!
