BREAKFAST & LUNCH MENUS

Our breakfast and lunch catering company, Twelve Oaks, was impacted by the storm and therefore will be unable to provide breakfast or lunch to scholars for the time being., Uplift’s Child Nutrition Program has stepped in to supply scholars with breakfast and lunch. The selection of items for breakfast and lunch will be limited so if families are able to provide a breakfast and lunch for their scholars please do so. The breakfast and lunch menu will be updated on our website. CLICK HERE to access the menus.

2019-20 UNHP ENRICHMENT COMMITTEE GIVING PROGRAM

As of October 27th, 2019 we are at 15% Family Participation. Only 110 more families need to donate ANY amount to reach our 25% Family Participation goal which would allow ALL UNHP scholars to take advantage of NO FORMAL dress* on Mondays!


DONATE NOW


  • Your Family Participation counts when you give at any level – whether $5 or $5,000!
  • When donating, you won't be asked for your scholar's name because we are tracking as Family Participation, not by scholar.
  • Donations are tax deductible


Visit: upliftnorthhills.org/UNHPdonate


* No formal dress means scholars will be able to wear their polo shirts instead of their Monday formal uniform. Please note, scholars may be required to wear their formal uniform for special events such as the first day of school and other days as announced.
