Community organizations win big through the Bridges of Friendship Award

Members of UCT’s Jack Kidd Council 755 in Saint John, New Brunswick, deliver goods to The ONE Change, Inc. to help with its community programs.

COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 2022 Two community organizations, one in the U.S. and the other in Canada, were each granted $5,000 for their programs from UCT Charities through the Bridges of Friendship Award at the UCT convention. The award is based in our organization’s grassroots, the local council, to reward non-profit organizations in local communities that members support through volunteering and donations.

Brave Heart – Children in Need in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and The ONE Change, Inc. in Saint John, New Brunswick, were this year’s recipients. Brave Heart is focused on improving the quality of life for children who are experiencing the trauma of being removed from their homes due to abuse and/or neglect while ONE Change provides services that address issues such as crime, poverty, unemployment, poor health, and lack of education.

Kudos to UCT’s Baton Rouge, Louisiana Council 499 and Jack Kidd Council 755 in Saint John for nominating these outstanding organizations for this award.
