The Underprivileged Children’s Center (UCC) is a school for underprivileged children, children living on the streets, orphans, and those living in extreme poverty. The school was created to allow those children from a disadvantaged background to have the opportunity to have an education and have the skills they need for a successful life. The school offers children a free education, uniforms, books, transport, and food every day. The school continues to support them throughout their education.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.
Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
