Recognizing Hispanic Heritage Month

Hispanic_Heritage_Month_2016

September 15 to October 15 marks National Hispanic Heritage Month. This is a special opportunity to recognize the contributions made by Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States and to celebrate our heritage and culture!

Latinos have had a profound and positive influence on our country through a strong commitment to family, faith, hard work and service. We have enhanced and shaped the national character with centuries-old traditions that reflect the multiethnic and multicultural customs of our community.

This year’s theme is Honoring our Heritage, Building our Future. At UnidosNow we live and breathe this mantra through our multigenerational approach to programs. We are privileged to serve talented, passionate young people – who, indeed, will be our future leaders – and to work with their parents, grandparents and siblings, as well, who bring their cultural wisdom and insight to cultivating these young leaders and to building a stronger community, overall!

This Campaign has ended. No more pledges can be made.
