As part of our ongoing dedication to not only providing clients with high-quality metal components but also supporting those in need, UMP would like to acknowledge Diabetes Awareness Month by spreading the word about this serious and chronic disease.
As many as 1 in 10 Americans suffer from diabetes, with another 1 in 3 American adults being prediabetic. These statistics illustrate just how important it is for all of us to stand up and fight diabetes through awareness and support for organizations that look to combat both the effects and the causes.
Many people are unaware of what diabetes is, who it affects, and what symptoms to look out for. For more information about diabetes and to support the fight to end diabetes, consider checking out the American Diabetes Association website. There you will find more about what diabetes is, who it affects, how diabetes can be managed, and more.
Supporting Diabetics 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 diabetes. 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:
- 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.
UMP cares about our clients, our staff, and the members of our community. We hope you join us in celebrating Diabetes Awareness Month by donating to a top diabetes awareness and treatment services charity. Remember, every dollar counts!
