Thank you to all who generously donated new and gently used coats, hats, gloves, mittens, scarves, and even blankets to support our UCBA Cares – Spread the Warmth Drive 2018. We collected over 200 items and donated them this week to the Talbert House. Our donations will help make this winter and the holiday season a lot warmer for so many who are truly in need!
