UA Little Rock | Reach 13,000

Reach 13,000 donations of non-perishable food, children’s books, children’s coloring books, crayons/markers are collected every fall from August-November.  These donations are given to UA Little Rock’s Food Pantry, Staff Senate Helping Hands Committee, and the 12th Street Clinic. Our collection progress can be viewed by our display next to the Information Desk in the DSC below the staircase. To help bring a campus wide awareness to the efforts, Reach 13,000 has four events that occur each month of the drive. All students, staff, and faculty members are encouraged to attend the events to help with the efforts to end hunger in Little Rock.

How to get involved! 

Reach 13,000 has a campus wide competition to raise awareness. The department that donates the most items as well as the student organization that collects the most items will each win a trophy to display in their prospective areas.
