The UALR Reach 13,000 Food Drive has started and will continue throughout the semester until November 4th. The goal of the Reach 13,000 Food Drive is to collect 13,000 non-perishable items to be donated to the UALR Food Pantry, Staff Senate’s Helping Hands, the 12th Street Clinic which is a non-profit clinic that also provides a food pantry and book donation to their patients and is ran by UALR students as well as UAMS students, and the remaining items will be donated to the Arkansas Food Bank.
This year, we will be a campus wide competition. Over the course of these three months, we will keep records of each Student Organization and each College Department that donates items to the drive. At the end of the campaign, we will announce the winning Student Organization and the winning College Department. The winning Student Organization and the winning Department that collects the most items will receive a trophy of honor to display.
