UTSA community members can help with volunteer projects to help clean up our environment. Thanks go to all of the volunteers who participated in the 2008 United to Serve Program. UTSA volunteers staffed 11 projects with approximately 250 volunteers. Participants received a United to Serve t-shirt and an invitation to the United to Serve Volunteer Appreciation Ice Cream Social on Wednesday, April 16.
United to Serve is a University of Texas System volunteer initiative involving students, administrators, faculty and staff in an effort to engage and mobilize thousands of community volunteers. The event is open to UTSA community members who want to give back to the community by volunteering at various locations in the San Antonio area.
