(Nov. 13, 2012) -- Through Dec. 1, the Bank of America Child and Adolescent Policy Research Institute (CAPRI) will sponsor the "If You Don't Wear it, Share It," coat and blanket drive benefitting foster youth from BCFS Health and Human Services, and Child Advocates of San Antonio (CASA).
Winter clothing is a necessity for foster youth in the wintertime as temperatures drop. A warm jacket and a blanket can be the difference between illness or well-being in the winter months.
During the drive, UTSA students will accept blanket, jacket and outerwear donations from infant sizes to adult sizes. Donations will be accepted at the Bank of America CAPRI Center in Monterey Building Room 2.260 on the UTSA Downtown Campus.
The project is supported by a UTSA HUD foster youth grant funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The HUD program gives UTSA graduate students and interns an opportunity to mentor foster youth, facilitate educational workshops, provide college access and information, assist with student housing and dorms, and provide financial aid assistance to all foster youth in care.
This one day symposium features keynote lectures by national level biomaterial scientists and engineers. Academic & industry researchers will showcase ongoing research to promote scientific collaborations in the state.
