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 year from August to April.  These donations are given to UA Little Rock’s Food Pantry, Staff Senate Helping Hands Committee, and the 12th Street Clinic. To help bring a campus wide awareness to the efforts, Reach 13,000 has been extended to last the entirety of each academic year, with two events in the Spring and two events in the Fall. 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 and the student organization that donates the most items will each win a trophy to display in their prospective areas.
