This one-hour workshop will offer light refreshments and bike-related giveaways.
Backpack Give Back
Help encourage the pursuit of education to disadvantaged youth in Orange County by taking part in the annual UCI Backpack Give Back. Through July 2, we will be collecting new and lightly used backpacks help prepare youth, in partnership with the South County Outreach, an organization that helps families in crisis in southern Orange County.
UCI faculty, staff, and students may also fill out cards with encouragement and inspiration that will be in every backpack. To fill out your own encouragement card, email email@example.com with your request, or contact Erika Hennon at (949) 824-5951.
