Show your love for the UNO community by donating to the Maverick Food Pantry this month.

The donation drive will be held through the end of February. Physical items and financial donations will be accepted. Whether you donate or just spread the word, you could help someone in need.

To show appreciation to donors and to honor Valentine’s Day, each donor before Monday, Feb. 14, received a handmade Valentine’s Day card. Cards were delivered on Valentine’s Day, but they will be accepting donations through the end of month with pre-made cards on hand.

The motto at the Maverick Food Pantry is “When you need it, take it. When you have it, give it.” They believe now is the perfect time to apply the motto.
