Supporting the troops: UAHT Fine Arts Club sponsors holiday care package drive

October 27, 2016

The University of Arkansas Hope-Texarkana Fine Arts Club is sponsoring a military service member holiday care package drive. The care packages will be sent to units in Afghanistan.

All donations must be delivered to the UAHT Fine Arts Club by November 14, 2016.
Hope campus, 2500 South Main, Hope, AR, 71801
Texarkana campus, 3501 UofA Way, Texarkana, AR, 71854

Attached is a list of items the troops would love to receive. Please note this is a gift drive, not a canned food drive. Troops are in great need of toiletries or other small goodies from home to add some cheer to their holiday season.

Also, if you would like to sponsor the postage cost of a package, the cost is $12.95 each. Please make checks payable to: UAHT Fine Arts Club.

If you have any questions, please contact Chelsea Slack at 870-722-8219 or chelsea.slack@uacch.edu.
