Helping Hands Food Drive

Imagine your holiday celebration with no turkey, dressing, potatoes, casseroles or deserts. The picture you envisioned is the reality for many of your fellow colleagues here at UALR. These low income families must spend their hard earned money on basic needs, leaving little to nothing for a holiday feast.

The Helping Hands Project, coordinated by the Staff Senate Helping Hands Committee, kicks off during the Fall Open House in which a reception is held for staff to network, win door prizes, and participate in a Teacup Auction.

If you or someone you know would like to apply for a holiday basket, please fill out the Helping Hands Application.
