At UMP, heart health is something we take to heart (pun intended). Along with our ongoing dedication to providing clients with high-quality metal components, we also are proud of our focus on our community and raising awareness for conditions that affect us all.
Heart health is of the utmost importance, but many people aren’t aware of how to best take care of their heart and prevent health issues like heart disease and heart attacks. For some quick tips to better support your heart health, consider the tools and materials provided by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. These important resources could literally save your life!
UMP encourages our customers and partners to spread awareness of American Heart Month and what can best be done to prevent heart-related illnesses. Some additional resources to consider include:
- The American Heart Association: https://www.heart.org/
- The State of Nevada Guide: https://risk.nv.gov/uploadedFiles/risknvgov/content/About/February.pdf
- The Illinois.gov Guide: https://cms.illinois.gov/benefits/stateemployee/bewell/awarenessmatters/february-is-heart-health-awareness-month.html
Supporting Heart Health Through Donations: The UMP Foundation
UMP understands how important it is to support organizations that serve the needs of those most at risk, research cures, treat ailments, and serve the underprivileged. In order to help those in need, Universal Metal Products founded The UMP Foundation.
The UMP Foundation is a non-profit that was established back in 2004 with the mission of contributing financial support to top charitable organizations, including those that help treat patients with heart-related issues. Through The UMP Foundation, UMP employees are able to set aside money from their paychecks to contribute to charitable causes. This allows our employees to make a huge impact on the world around them.
These causes are selected by the UMP Foundation Committee on a quarterly basis. Some of the organizations The UMP Foundation has donated to include:
- The Lake Health Foundation
- University Hospitals
- Cleveland Clinic Foundation
Universal Metal Products is a female-owned company that helps with the creation of metal components for the automotive, appliance, and industrial industries. We are able to create a variety of custom and standard components for vehicles, HVAC units, refrigerators, electronics, sub pumps, and much more. Along with volunteering, championing noble causes, and charity, we value equality. This is why we focus on creating a culture of inclusivity. We do this by offering family-friendly policies and work shift hours, equal pay for equal work, and a dedication to providing a positive and harassment-free workplace environment.
We hope you join us in celebrating American Heart Month by donating to a top heart health awareness and/or treatment services charity, or by simply spreading awareness of the issue by sharing the links above with your loved ones.
