Rainy weather didn’t dampen the holiday cheer at the Hispanic Faculty and Staff Association’s (HFSA) John Treviño Jr. Holiday Assistance event held on Friday, Dec. 3 at the entrance of San Jacinto Residence Hall.
Featured below are a few photo highlights from the time-honored event. Find more photos on Flickr.
Supported by University Housing and Dining and several other campus, community and corporate sponsors, the annual event provides hundreds of turkeys, boxes of produce and gifts to university employees who need a little help during the holidays.
Campus partners from UT Farm Stand provide fresh vegetables, locally sourced from small, sustainable farms including University Housing and Dining’s campus gardens.
Throughout the day, volunteers guided their fellow Longhorns along the drive-through lane and loaded cars with extra-large turkeys and trimmings.
Students pause for a snapshot to show their Longhorn pride.
