When something tragic happens in Arkansas, you can always count on everyone coming together and helping in any way they can.
UALR is no different in this desire to help others.
Items can be brought to the Donaghey Student Center, outside the campus bookstore. The final delivery will take place 11 a.m. Friday, May 9.
