UP Orlando changes lives.

We empower and inspire good people experiencing bad situations to uplift themselves and their families from poverty to self-sufficiency. It is never easy, but it is immensely rewarding and the most important work we can do. So we do it with joy, passion and a strong belief in our purpose.

Our work would not be possible without you, our valued volunteers. Team UP 360 volunteers support our UP Orlando Grocery Program, which allows people living in poverty to purchase food, hygiene and household items for up to 70% off regular prices. These savings mean that people can purchase enough food – quality food – without having to choose between feeding their families or paying other bills.

We rely on volunteers to keep our prices low, our shelves stocked and our store clean and organized for shoppers. The valuable work you do in collaboration with our staff ensures that our members – your neighbors– have a dignified shopping experience, just like you. We believe everyone deserves that. 

Sign up for TeamUP 360 today, and volunteer to end poverty for good.
