Sports and Fitness Collects Food in Time for Thanksgiving

In the spirit of Thanksgiving and community service, UHD Sports & Fitness competed in a friendly staff food drive and collected enough food to serve 742 meals.

Last year, the group collected enough food to serve 502 meals - an increase this year of 240 meals. The Sports & Fitness staff enjoyed the friendly competition, which pitted teams against each other in a race to collect the most canned goods. The winning team included Jeovanna Cruz, Miriam Ignacio, Eloy Flores, Darius Battles, Daniel Oliver and Director Richard Sebastiani. Team members went door to door in various neighborhoods across Houston wearing UHD shirts and collecting food for those in need.
