The UFCW Free College Benefit makes it possible for members and their families to earn an Associate Degree online through Eastern Gateway Community College. LaTrice Duncan recently received her degree in May through the program, and had the following to share about her experience:

So many people feel hopeless at the thought of not being able to afford a college education, and many give up looking for sources of assistance.  What UFCW Local 1994 has done for me is beyond comprehensible.  Not only did they provide me with a first-class education, but I am graduated debt free.

My educational pursuits would not be possible without the generous benefit that UFCW afforded me.  For someone like myself that never thought a quality education was in reach, they extended a hand that allowed me to reach further than I could ever had dreamed about.

Respectfully,

LaTrice Duncan


We’re there for you.
