Philanthropy

Making a positive impact in peoples’ lives is what UMA is all about. That includes proudly supporting a number of nonprofit organizations in our community through volunteer work, donations, services, scholarships and monetary contributions.

Community Spotlight: Pack-A-Snack – Many Tampa Bay area children participate in the school lunch program but lack access to nutritional meals on the weekend, so UMA participates in the Pack-A-Snack program. This nonprofit program provides nutritional snacks for children to take home on the weekends, including fresh produce. UMA currently supports four local schools through this program:

  • Woodlawn Elementary
  • Fairmont Elementary
  • Melrose Elementary
  • Campbell Park Elementary
