Support the Kathleen McCasland Community Service Day at ODTUG Kscope18
UP Orlando depends on generous individuals and community-minded companies to fund its programs and help feed the people they serve. UP Orlando staff members are needed to assist in the onsite activities for the Kathleen McCasland Community Service Day project, food is needed to keep our volunteers energized, and transportation costs need to be covered. We are so close to our donation goal, but we need YOUR help!

Companies or individuals donating more than $300 by May 1, 2018, will have their names or logos placed on the back of the official Community Service Day T-shirt. Donate today!

A Special Thank You Note from Kathleen

Ending slide _ThanksKathleen (2).png
Dear ODTUG Friends,

I was so surprised and am honored to have the ODTUG Kscope18 Community Service Day named after me. Volunteerism is very important to me and I am extremely happy that ODTUG continues this pre-conference tradition every year. It is a testament to the spirit of ODTUGers.

The blog Mike Riley wrote about me and the very touching video that followed was another big surprise. I had so much fun with ODTUG and honestly loved all my time with ODTUG. My heart is so full right now, I can’t explain it. Thank you to everyone who took the time to participate in this video and to all of my ODTUG friends. Both Mac and I are most grateful for our memories and the very special friends from all over the world we have made through ODTUG.

With a big smile and thankful heart,

Kathleen McCasland, Former ODTUG Executive Director, 1996 – 2012
