Description
In conjunction with 40 Hours for the Forty Acres, we will be hosting a student fundraising event on April 13 from 10:00 AM till 2:00 PM on UT's Main Mall. Over 30 student organizations will be showcasing their work and collection donations at this event. UT students, faculty, staff, and any local friends or alumni are invited to come support our student programming, see some live entertainment and participate in fun activities!

Volunteers wll be needed throughout the day to help direct traffic and answer questions, as well as to oversee activities at the event and give out free Tiff's Treats and UT gear.

40 Hours for the Forty Acres is a university-wide effort to encourage all Longhorns- sutdents, alumni, faculty, and staff alike- to rally as a community in support of our great University. For 40 Hours, we are collecting donations given all throughout the University. This is the third year of this campaign, and we are hoping it will be a huge success!
