The John Treviño Jr. Holiday Assistance Program would not be possible without the support of our partners, both on the UT campus as well as within the surrounding community. Due to the current pandemic, we will provide a turkey and gift card to purchase ingredients for a holiday meal to hundreds of UT families this year. Your generosity and support can go a long way to serve our families.

This year we will be distributing turkeys and gift cards, instead of a bag of groceries. Your support of donated gift cards can help fill the gaps with needed funds to serve our families. Gift cards should be treated the same as cash donations. It is suggested that the HEB gift card have either a $10, $15, or $20 value. We will set up drop off days during the month of November to collect gift cards. You may also drop gift cards in the mail and send to: HFSA/Holiday Assistance Program, P.O. Box 8184
