Sports & Fitness' Gator Paint Party Feb. 20

UHD Sports & Fitness and the Center for Community Engagement & Service Learning is hosting its Gator Painting Party, 1-3 p.m., on  Wednesday, Feb. 20 in the Coffee House (Academic Building, Third Floor).

The Gator Community—students, faculty, and staff—are invited to create unique bowls that will be donated to the Houston Food Bank's Empty Bowls program. The four separate paint parties have one goal: to create more than 100 bowls for such a worthy cause. UHD teams, organizations and departments are encouraged to take part in this fun and exciting way to give back to the community. The bowl painting takes approximately 45 minutes.

Supplies and refreshments will be provided. No fee is required with UHD ID. To sign up, visit the third floor customer service counter in the Student Life Center. For more information, visit uhd.edu/sportsandfitness.
