Union United is a 501(c)(3) non-profit community improvement group which consists of a group of concerned individuals that are  “pulling together” to improve and revitalize Union.  Our mission is to solidify the future of Union by restoring a sense of community and providing a place where residents are proud to call home.
 
Union United continues their mission to rebuild and revitalize the Village of Union by promoting community involvement and volunteerism. Established in 2010, the non-profit organization encourages environmental awareness and accountability by facilitating a full-time, multi-stream recycling center for household waste and through community events such as the semi-annual community cleanup, which includes recycling of used tires, electronics, and metal. In partnership with Keep Cass County Beautiful and the Nebraska Department of Roads, the group sponsors a semi-annual litter cleanup along a 2-mile stretch of Highway 34 outside of Union. Union United’s other ongoing projects include:

·         Trap, neuter, return program-Management of the town’s feral cats, in which volunteers transport the cats to veterinary clinics for spay/neuter surgery and vaccinations, as well as continuously providing food and shelter for the free-roaming cat population.

·         Caboose Restoration Project-Historic Missouri Pacific caboose #12124 stands at the west end of Union and serves as a reminder of the town’s rich railroad history. Decades of vandalism and neglect have plagued the unique historic landmark. With guidance from the Missouri Pacific Historical Society, Union United has begun developing a multi-phase plan to undertake restoration of the caboose.

·         Concession stand sales-Union United members oversee volunteer recruitment and operation of the concession stand during Union Dirt Devils home games, generating proceeds that support the baseball program and other park improvement projects.

Union United meets the first Thursday of each month at the Union JunKtion (115 West Main Street in Union). For more information please email: editor@unionnebraska.com
