UMe helps. And U can, too!

Here at UMe, we look forward to the holidays just as much as Santa and all his elves, not only for all the festive cheer and peppermint mocha lattes, but also for the opportunity to spread joy and smiles throughout our community. This year, we’ve partnered with the Burbank Coordinating Council (BCC) to collect donations for their annual Holiday Basket program, which benefits local families in need during the holidays. The BCC has been around since 1933, and its mission has been to enrich the lives of financially disadvantaged members in our community, with a focus on children and families.

From now until December 1st, we are collecting toy donations here at UMe to support the BCC’s Holiday Basket program. Donation items must be new, unwrapped, and dropped off in the big purple tubs at our lobby’s entrance by December 1st.

Are U looking for some gift ideas? The UMe Emu is here to help! Click here for a list of suggested donation items made by the UMe Emu himself. Thanks in advance for your support (it REALLY goes a long way).
