Generous monetary donations, donated items, and community involvement

 
February Events for UpsideDown Moments

March at UpsideDown Moments was nothing short of amazing! Give Choose Day brought an outpouring of support from our incredible community, resulting in generous donations that will fuel our newest program- Vehicles Empowering Hope. But the love didn't stop there- we had the privilege of fulfilling several special requests, from providing car seats for little ones to securing essential items for families in transition and receiving other doantions as well. It's been a month filled with compassion, generosity, and meaningful impact, and we're immensely grateful to everyone who has played a part in making it all possible. Here's to spreading more love and support in the months to come!

Floris UMC generously donated 20 bears and accessories to UpsideDown Moments

We are absolutely touched and grateful for the incredible gesture from Floris UMC, who generously donated 20 brand new stuffed bears to UpsideDown Moments. These heartwarming gifts were put together with love and care by 5th graders and their families. Each bear came with its very own tote bag, birth certificate, and adorable outfit, making them even more special. It's truly heartening to see such compassion and generosity from our community, especially from our youngest members. These bears will undoubtedly bring comfort and joy to the children we serve, and we are deeply thankful to Floris UDM and all those involved for their kindness and thoughtfulness.

Thank you for your generosity and for caring!
