The 2012 Helping Hands Food Basket project will kick-off Thursday, October 25th. The Fall Open House will be from 1 to 4 PM in the DSC Upper Concourse. Light refreshments will be served. This will be a great opportunity to fellowship and meet the UALR Staff Senators.
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. Last year, we assisted 107 families in meeting this need and anticipate this year the need will be even greater.
Each family receives a food basket and a gift card to purchase meat for the holiday meal. All the funds raised from the auction will go towards meeting this need.

The UALR Helping Hands Imitative is the annual drive to assist UALR families during the holiday season. Through your giving efforts we were able to assist 107 families last year with a food basket and a gift card to purchase meat for a holiday meal.
