Estamos Unidos de Pennsylvania (EUP) is an organization dedicated to providing our community avenues to advance, enrich, and better their lives through education, leadership, and social skills. Each year, EUP receives T.V. and news media attention for its Gala and community-based outreach that provides cultural awareness through the arts, traditions, and family values and assistance to our community with the integration process into the community at large.
“Estamos Unidos, (EUP), a nonprofit organization, began as a group of volunteers who wanted to help Hispanic children in three main areas: Cultural Heritage, Educational Advancement and Mentoring Programs. The group’s first initiative was to provide gifts to underprivileged children during the holiday season. Today, they continue their commitment by helping hundreds of children and adults in the Capital Region.
EUP has provided over nearly $100,000 in scholarships to over 75 students in the past 15 years, all done with community volunteers. Proceeds from special events go directly to educational initiatives. Current EUP President Amanda Batista-Brgulja, was one such scholarship recipient and is continuing this 15-year tradition.Of the five signature events, the EUP Gala highlights young adults and supports their educational initiatives with scholarships.Several sponsors throughout the years also donate needed items such as used laptops to support these educational efforts.”
