UCI Annual Backpack Give Back
Help encourage disadvantaged youth to pursue higher education by taking part in the annual UCI Backpack Give Back. Through July 1, we will be collecting new and lightly used backpacks in partnership with South County Outreach, an organization that helps families in crisis in southern Orange County.
