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.
