The Union County Education Foundation is a community-based organization that focuses on providing funds, in the form of Mini-Grants, for various projects to Union County Public Schools. They are solely dedicated to children’s education. The organization celebrates Public Education week by raising funds for these Mini-Grants. UCEC would like to thank the Union County Education Foundation for giving us the opportunity to host and expose our students to various career fields.
