Local 965 helped the Jane B. Gearhart Full Circle Food Pantry on the University of Arkansas campus the week after Thanksgiving, preparing food baskets.
They’re actually boxes, which can hold more. Some might think of such volunteer work on holidays themselves, but eating is a 7-day/52-week necessity.
Members of the Local worked with Full Circle staff at the facility on Nov. 27, 2018. Some brought family members to participate.
The pantry by the way is WAHR C204, i.e. Bud Walton Hall, 324 Stadium Drive.
That a significant percentage of pantry patrons are U of A employees and students has been a major argument for the Living Wage Campaign of the 965.
