Volunteer Opportunity – UAMS Veterans Awareness Committee

Last year, thanks in part to the effort of our student volunteers, our UAMS Veterans Awareness Committee collected over $2,300.00, hundreds of signatures on thank you cards, and many donations. The money and items were used by our UAMS Project SEARCH interns and some others to assemble more than 420 care packages which were given to UAMS veteran in-patients, long term care veteran patients at Eugene Towbin Veterans Affairs Hospital at Fort Roots in North Little Rock and to veterans housed in transitional housing at St. Francis House Ministries in Little Rock.  We are now in our eighth year of providing this community service to our veteran community.

Students, if you need volunteer community service hours and are willing to help staff donation tables and/or assemble packages, please email Ms. Odette Woods at  Ms. Woods can answer any questions you have about this volunteer opportunity.  If you provide a volunteer service documentation form during the time of your service, Ms. Woods will be happy to sign your form.

Collection/donation tables will be set-up beginning Tuesday, October 24th  through Tuesday, November 7th  from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m.   Care package assembly will take place in Barton 2R22a and 2R222b from November 6th through November 8th from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m.  We are asking volunteers to work as many one-hour shifts as they would like.

Thanks for all you do and for your continued support of our veterans!
