The Saginaw United Commercial Travelers (UCT) presented Community Village with a brand new 6-burner Weber grill. Every year, the UCT manages the food tent at the Village’s Strawberry Festival, and their familiarity with the old grill prompted their generosity. (We think that was a nice way of saying they knew how much a new grill was needed.) Linda Buggia is the Senior Counselor of the Saginaw Council #43 of United Commercial Travelers.
Saginaw Council #43 was established in 1893 because traveling sales people were often excluded from insurance products offered by traditional insurance companies. Hence the UCT was developed as a society to make insurance products available.
Today the UCT uses the funds generated by their membership to assist local non-profit organizations like Community Village and their generosity is greatly appreciated.
