The 2nd Annual US United Holiday Spectacular demonstrates the power of unity in action as we bring together the entire Flint / Genesee County community to support a happy holiday for less fortunate citizens and families. Diverse community members from all constituencies fan out in teams to deliver holidays gifts and the message that together in unity we can all make a difference.
In addition, we take the unique step of just asking what people need to have a happy holiday and then granting that wish. Last year, for instance, we repaired a gaping hole in a roof that left a family with a snowy living room, made 3 car payments for a woman who was about to lose her job without transportation, bought holiday meals for families struggling with COVID and supported a retired Army nurse suffering from PTSD and her 4 kids who were living in a trailer after a fire destroyed their home. All it takes is simply asking what people need. They will tell you and they will never forget that you listened.
