Our most common task will be sorting through donated food, checking for package quality, and ensuring the product is “in date”.

Poverty Simulation Volunteers Needed

Please consider volunteering for an upcoming Poverty Simulation scheduled for Friday, February 23rd. Poverty Simulations are an educational experience for both volunteers and participants, and they truly take a village to accomplish. Help students learn about the challenges people in poverty face in their daily lives. No experience is required, and multiple roles are needed. Learn more and sign up to volunteer here: https://uthsc.givepulse.com/event/432703. (Log in with your UTHSC credentials.) Interested in having your class participate in a poverty simulation?
