The University of Arkansas Staff Senate is sponsoring the RazorGifts Staff Holiday Gifting Program again this year! Employee-to-employee gifting is the basis of our rewarding and appreciated program. We can all play a role in making the holidays a great time for individuals in need within our community.

The Facts

Northwest Arkansas statistics show that 25% of NWA children live in poverty, 50% of our homeless population are children, and 27% of our children are in danger of going hungry tonight. These statistics are alarming. Currently the Full Circle Food Pantry provides food and personal products to all members of the University of Arkansas community. Our gifting program is designed to assist staff through the holidays by obtaining employee donated gifts and essentials for dependent children. Our program is driven by employee to employee gifting and the University of Arkansas is not a sponsor or participant.
