Holiday ROAR Luncheon and Book Drive
Thursday, December 5 at 11:30 am to 1:30 pm
Don & Karen DeRosa University Center, Ballroom
901 Presidents Dr, Stockton, CA 95211
University of the Pacific faculty and staff are invited to the annual holiday lunch to enjoy a seasonal meal, fellowship and collect books to benefit children from low income backgrounds in San Joaquin County. Bring a new book for children ages 3 to 9 years and give the gift of reading. This year we will also accept non-perishable donations for the Pacific Food Pantry.
The university's annual Holiday ROAR book drive helps two literacy outreach programs: Pacific's Community Involvement Program (CIP) and Community Medical Centers.
You can also drop off books to the collection area in the DeRosa University Center from Nov. 18–Dec. 5. Books in Spanish are especially needed. Join with your unit or department and donate books on topics you are passionate about!
Visit the Holiday Roar website for more information, including a list of suggested books.
