UCOP colleagues are giving back — here’s how to join them
On November 16, UCOP volunteers volunteered at the Alameda County Community Food Bank (ACCFB), where they packaged 32,949 pounds of fruits, potatoes and onions that will be used to create 27,348 meals for unprivileged residents in the East Bay.
Joyce Price, chair of the Black Staff and Faculty Organization (BSFO), says, “Great job! For those who participated in this event, we could not have accomplished our goal without your support. I’d like to give an extra shout-out to Andenet Emiru for facilitating this successful event.”
If you’d like to join BSFO and other UCOP Employee Resource Groups in giving back, there are still two opportunities to participate!
Volunteer at the food bank on Dec. 8
The next Alameda County Community Food Bank outreach event will take place on Dec. 8. Volunteers are still needed for the morning (8:30 – 11:30 a.m.) and afternoon (12 – 3 p.m.) shifts.
