COMMUNITY SUPPORT

Local Projects

The work of United Hands Relief domestically

In addition to delivering emergency aid around the world, UHR also helps the poorest of the poor and brings relief to disaster victims locally and nationwide.

UHR accepts monetary donations, as well as product donations of misprinted, slightly damaged, over-stocked, or gently used supplies from individuals, organizations, and corporations nationwide.

With the help of our dedicated volunteers, product donations are sorted at our 5,000 square-foot processing center in Arlington, Texas so they are ready to be shipped for immediate distribution. Locals in need can call and schedule an appointment to visit the center and pick up the items they need.
