With the New Year comes a renewed commitment to the community outreach programs and services who Uproar Communications has partnered with over the years. This year a new project, Ride the Pink Elevator
, has sparked our interest along with our annual work for Power of the Purse, Michigan Mercury Collection Program and Waggin’ Tails Dog Rescue
. These groups all illustrate cooperative efforts on the part of the community to raise awareness and provide immediate help. We look forward to working with them in 2015.

Power of the Purse
The Women’s Leadership Initiative of the United Way of Washtenaw County hosts an annual ‘Power of the Purse’ event. This very special event brings together women from our community for an evening of wonderful food and fabulous purses. Funds raised from this event help fund grants that will allow women in our community to achieve their potential. In 2014, the Women’s Leadership Initiative was able to grant $36,267 to local non-profit agencies supporting women. Power of the Purse will be held on Wednesday March 11, 2015, from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at the Eastern Michigan University Student Center
Michigan Mercury Collection Program
The Mercury Collection Program provides FREE mercury collection services to Michigan areas and business sites. By calling a designated number or email address, a participant can request a collection bucket/box and instruction kit. UPS delivers the kit container to the participant who simply places in-tact mercury devices in the bucket and applies the return UPS label. The bucket is returned to a licensed disposal company for remediation.
