UHD, Houston Food Bank Partner for Backpack Buddy Program March 31

Volunteers Welcome for Upcoming Event

The University of Houston-Downtown's campus continues to serve as a site for community service. This week, UHD and longtime partner, the Houston Food Bank, will team up to host a Backpack Buddy Pop-Up Shop, providing Houstonians with school supplies, food and other items to support student success. 

The Backpack Buddy Pop-Up Shop will be a drive-through event conducted from 3 to 6 p.m., March 31 in UHD’s Daly Lot (500 N. Main Street). Volunteers will be on hand to distribute food boxes, school supplies and hygiene packs to K-12 students and their families.  

Volunteers are still needed and can sign up for the event

This is the second Backpack Buddy Pop-Up Shop to be conducted on campus. UHD and the Houston Food Bank previously partnered in January for a successful school supply distribution.
