Union Mills Learning Center needs your help! We only have 8 windows left to replace on the main floor. The window project has been ongoing for several years and we are close to knocking out the largest portion! We need $3500 to complete this project and would like have installation complete by December. For a $50 donation, a plaque will be affixed to a window in memory or honor of someone of your choice. All donations are tax deductible. Your contributions are appreciated as we continue to preserve OUR community organization!
You may donate online or mail your contribution to: UMLC- PO Box 210 Union Mills, NC 28167.

The Rutherford County Endowment board recently awarded $5,000 to the Union Mills Learning Center to be used for the "Rural Hub" project that will allow UMLC to become a stronger support for small businesses, disadvantiged citizens, farmers, and local citizens seeking educational opportunities. The project includes contracting with PANGAEA to extend the county's existing fiber optic cable that currently ends 1/2 mile from UMLC. Once that line has been extended, UMLC will be able to connect and have access to the fastest and most reliable internet available in the county. Since 2007, PANGAEA's “Speed of Light” fiber network has expanded to nearly two hundred miles, serving the major arteries of Polk and Rutherford Counties in western North Carolina.
