UHD Hosts Holidays Around the World Exhibit

IMG_6487UHD is hosting the Holidays Around the World exhibit, a miniature tree display to promote the unique culture, heritage, or holiday traditions of their country or region using ornaments and national symbols. The exhibit is located by the third floor mural area.

Faculty, staff and students are welcomed to view the exhibit and are encouraged to consider purchasing a tree of their own. The UHD UNA Chapter has a decorated tree displayed as well.

The Consular Ladies Club of Houston presents Holidays Around the World in partnership with Consular Corps-Houston, the Mayor’s Office of Trade & International Affairs and the University of Houston-Downtown.

For information on how to purchase a tree, please visit the Charity Auction.

All proceeds benefit the Houston Food Bank.
