We are excited to announce the 2024-26 Hometown Hero Banner Program for downtown Union City. Not only is this a fundraiser for Main Street Union City, but it is also a way to recognize local men and women who served, currently serve or paid the ultimate sacrifice for the United States of America.
The mission of this program is to honor and recognize Union City area servicemen and women and their families who have served or given their lives to our country in the United States Armed Forces.
