CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) - The University of Central Arkansas in Conway is continuing their tradition of giving back to the city by holding their second annual Day of Giving.
Set for March 17, students, faculty, staff and alumni of the university will go around town helping those who need it most. Tasks such as raking, picking up trash and cleaning homes are including in what the UCA Bears will be doing to help those in the community. It is all a part of one big goal, and that is to raise funds that will go towards emergency student scholarships.
“Spring 2015 was our first Day of Giving and the response was phenomenal. This is an important initiative on campus and we encourage all alumni, friends, faculty, staff and students to help in this effort. Every gift, regardless of size, really helps,” said President Tom Courtway.
Emergency student scholarships are one-time scholarships given to students who find themselves in dire straits.
