United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) of San Joaquin, Calaveras, and Amador Counties is the recipient of a $3,000 grant from Stockton Rotary Club. This generous grant will enable UCP to continue remodeling the kitchen at its Benjamin Holt Adult Day Center program, one of its many programs for adults and children with cerebral palsy.
The remodel will make the Benjamin Holt kitchen a safer, more productive environment. With the grant, UCP plans to purchase a wall oven, a refrigerator and freezer, and a microwave. The new appliances and remodeled kitchen will give all customers easier access to the counters and appliances. In particular, wheelchair-bound customers will be able to move around the area without difficulty, a needed change. UCP also hopes to incorporate bright and cheerful colors in the kitchen to create a more relaxed, positive atmosphere.
In addition, another local organization, LDA Partners donated their architectural services by providing floor plans for layout and design for the remodel project.
UCP has been advocating for children and adults with cerebral palsy and other disabilities for over 50 years, and provides programs such as day centers and early intervention services. UCP is committed to helping its customers overcome obstacles by creating systems that are accessible, dependable, and promote independence. It has numerous locations around the San Joaquin, Calaveras, and Amador counties and, thanks in part to the generosity of groups like Stockton Rotary, is able to continue to grow and improve.
