It's that time of year again - the time to give, that is! Food insecurity is real and affects students within the UAB community. Let's make a difference and pack the Department of Student Advocacy's on-campus food pantry. 

You don't even have to worry about going to the grocery store to buy cans. We've got that covered! For $5, you can get 5 cans to donate directly to the food pantry. Come to the Commons on the Green at anytime on Friday, November 13th and purchase your cans and take them to the Department of Student Advocacy's office, located at 1715 9th Avenue South. What's even better? Cans can be purchased using your Dining Dollars, Blazer Bucks or cash or credit. 

Tis the season to give and make a difference!
