Children and Adults with Disabilities Benefit from Circle K's Unwavering Commitment
Date:5/28/2009

PHOENIX, May 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) of Central Arizona has been the beneficiary of Circle K's community involvement for over twenty-five years. Locally and nationally Circle K has remained the largest corporate sponsor for the organization that provides comprehensive programming to over 2,500 children and adults with various disabilities including cerebral palsy, autism, down syndrome, developmental delays and learning disabilities.

On April 27th and 28th, Circle K hosted their annual Red Rock Classic Golf Tournament in Sedona, AZ benefitting UCP of Central Arizona. The event raised over $70,000 for UCP's programs and services. This two day event brought various Circle K vendors and business partners together on UCP's behalf. These proceeds were above and beyond the funds raised by Circle K for UCP throughout their in-store canister displays. In 2008, over $2.6 million was raised through the in-store collections by Circle K personnel. At the current rate, 2009 collections are expected to exceed the 2008 collection totals.

UCP Executive Director Dan Rossi says, "UCP of Central Arizona feels so very fortunate to have a corporate partner like Circle K, particularly when considering the current budget climate of Arizona. Like many other nonprofit organizations, especially those providing disability services, we are facing very dramatic budget cuts. The budget cuts will potentially affect every segment of our programming. Without the community support we receive from donors and corporate supporters, such as Circle K, we would be forced to limit our services and possibly even close our programs. The donations made by Circle K customers in every Circle K store throughout Arizona have allowed us to continue providing much needed therapies and services to individuals with disabilities and their families."

UCP of Central Arizona is an affiliate of the nationally recognized UCP Association, one of the nation's largest 501(c) 3 health charities. Since 1952, UCP of Central Arizona has provided therapies, independent living services, inclusive and integrated educational based programs, innovative social opportunities and basic research.
