United Development Supports Pro Players Foundation in Helping Disadvantaged Youth

United Development Company continues our support of The Pro Players Foundation with their latest initiative of helping underprivileged children. UDC co-sponsored the December, 2017 building of a new playground for kids in Arlington, Tx, and this Santa you will recognize if you look closely, was a hit in handing out gifts to the children.

… From 2016

2016 marked UDC’s first year to participate in Pro Players Foundation’s Chili Cook-Off where we tested and refined what would become our awarding winning recipe in 2017.

Pro Players Foundation fosters the growth and development of disadvantaged children in North Texas through sports based programs. The Pro Players Foundation is a group of professional athletes and business and community leaders, who volunteer their time and talents to assist disadvantaged youth. With the mission of “Enriching the Lives of Children,” PPF uses a variety of initiatives to help make sure every child has the ability to succeed and the opportunity for a bright future.
