Buy Blue: Gators Helping Gators

Gator Family,

UHD is putting forth an unprecedented effort to boost alumni-owned entrepreneurs, and to build up those among us whose businesses make up our communities. We invite you to complete this short form to share some details, which we’ll pass along to the UHD Gator community, to encourage them to patronize your business.

If you’re in food service or retail, let us know how we can place orders for pick-up or delivery. If your operations are temporarily halted, let us know where we might be able to support you through the purchase of gift cards today. Let us know if you have a special discount or promotion for UHD students, alumni or employees, or if you have a special offer for folks who are having a tough time.

We know that Gator Grit will help Houston, and all of us get us through this, so let’s pull together and make the most of this tough time. We’re all in this together.
