This year, the University of Vermont will again make service to others a key theme of its annual holiday party.

The party will take place on Monday, Dec. 16 at the Davis Center's Grand Maple Ballroom from 4 to 5:30 p.m. From 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. that day, faculty and staff who wish to participate can bring non-perishable food items to a large UVM bus parked just outside the student center. The bus will deliver the goods to the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf. UVM staff will be on hand to accept the goods. Faculty and staff may also make cash or check donations to the Food Shelf. 

Last year, UVM donated more than 7,000 pounds of food to the organization.
