Community Outreach Update
October 9, 2020
There’s still THREE days left to join the RECtober fun! This inaugural 10-day event is open to EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE, promoting recreation, health and wellness! To date we have raised over $4,500 while also inspiring and encouraging folks to get active and have FUN!
RECtober began on October 2nd and runs through the 11th, where individuals and teams made up of family, friends and coworkers have been “competing” by completing daily activities for time while earning raffle tickets for fun prizes. Walk, Run, Bike, Roll and more for a great cause while getting healthy, fit and being active.
Now is the time to register TODAY for $20, then invite others EVERYWHERE to join the fun! Every entry will receive this limited-edition face mask commemorating this special event!
Complete details and registration information are available at www.RECtober.com
HAVE FUN and please spread the word!
Now Open: “Flipside Thrift,” our new UCP of the North Bay Thrift Center, is open now at 6591 Commerce Blvd. in Rohnert Park. UCP of the North Bay has owned and operated multiple thrift centers for many years in Solano, Sutter, Yolo, and Santa Cruz Counties – and now Sonoma County! All proceeds support our programs for children and adults with developmental disabilities.
UCP of the North Bay would like to give our sincere thanks and support to the first responders and emergency personnel that are battling the current fires, risking their safety so that we can be safe. Their courage and dedication is an inspiration to all of us who work to improve the lives of people with developmental disabilities living throughout the North Bay. On behalf of the entire UCP of the North Bay Community, thank you!
Cypress School Update
The Cypress team continues to support students through distance learning with innovative supports to address unique needs and challenges and explore strengths and talents. This week, the team is making improvements to our sites and vehicles and practicing safety protocols and procedures within our cohorts to remain as safe as possible while increasing in person instruction.
The key to successful re-entry to in person instruction is heightened communication. Everyone in the Cypress community is inspired to support the transition and eventual expansion to more in person instruction. Don’t hesitate to reach out to Cypress or UCPNB Administration when you have questions or suggestions and we will respond as soon as possible.

Gone for Good has started a new fundraising campaign to help send some of our participants to Adult Camp next year.

Items will include T-Shirts, coffee mugs, sports towels, baseball hats and masks all with the 3Peat logo. The fundraiser will run for a month beginning Friday, October 9th.
