UWF Founders Week Day of Service 2019
Many of our offices participated in this year's UWF Founder's Week Day of Service 2019.
Business & Auxiliary Services - In patnership with Gulf Coast Kid's House, staff of the Business and Auxiliary Services made and distributed bows to local businesess in order to raise awareness for Child Abuse Prevention month.
Student Accounts & Cashier's Office - Staff volunteered at the Council on Aging to help them with several projects around their facilities.
Facilities Management - The Facilities team members were quite involved with Founder's week activities. Not only did Jeff and his crew go above and beyond to get the grounds ready for all the events (including the lawn mowed on University Parkway), but we had folks who participated in the Day of Service, who gave blood, and who gave dollars on the Day of Giving! Many events that took place during the day included someone from Facilities actively participating in the event. We are so proud of the whole team!
Emerald Coast Campus - The Emerald Coast crew also did an amazing job as we tried to mirror all events on the Pensacola Campus. We had a blood drive, a Day of Service, and many givers on the Day of Giving! We enjoyed a successful week of events in Fort Walton Beach.
