Outreach - Holiday Food Drive
This year’s UCSC SHHFD team had a goal of 60,000 meals. In the end we doubled that number raising over 100,000 meals for people in need in Santa Cruz County.
UCSC took home two recognition awards this year. One called "Above and Beyond" and another called "Big Step". Big step is awarded to the organization that made the largest increase in donations compared to the previous year. This award is on display at Kerr Hall. See: UCSC community reports record breaking holiday season of giving.
UCSC, for the first time this year, entered the "Titanium Barrel" level of donations along with the county's other top donating entities including: Plantronics, Twin Lakes, Bay Federal, Central California Alliance for Health, Dominican, PAMF and Wells Fargo Bank.
Lastly, we’re very excited that Dr. Sarah Latham, our new Vice Chancellor of Business and Administrative Services, was introduced as the 2013 county wide drive chair. We expect to do great things again next year. VC Latham will bring considerable resources and influence to the table and we are absolutely thrilled to have her on the team!
