UCP Seguin volunteers show support for veterans
UCP Seguin of Greater Chicago paid a visit to The Moving Wall as it passed through Illinois in August. The Wall, a replica of the Vietnam Veteran Memorial in Washington, D.C., has been touring the U.S. for 30 years. UCP Seguin's Community Connections program jumped in to provide some of the volunteers needed to ensure a meaningful experience for local veterans. The volunteers, including people with disabilities, helped loved ones locate the names of friends and family on the exhibit. The Community Connections program helps people with disabilities give back to their community. UCP Seguin of Greater Chicago, an affiliate of United Cerebral Palsy, serves 1,000 children and adults with disabilities throughout the Greater Chicago area.
United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) educates, advocates and provides support services to
ensure a life without limits for people with a spectrum of disabilities. Together
with nearly 100 affiliates, UCP has a mission to advance the independence,
productivity and full citizenship of people disabilities by supporting more than

and create opportunities—impacting the lives of millions living with disabilities.

disabilities in every facet of society. Together, with parents and caregivers,
