CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – The McNair Scholars Program joined forces with Student Support Services for the National TRIO Day of service on February 23, where volunteers met in the University Center to distribute donations of clothing and canned goods for the local Salvation Army.

In preparation for the “Spring Clean” event, staff and students opened their closets and cupboards to find items that would help local homeless residents.  The donations were collected the week of February 18-23 and given to the McNair Scholars Program office.

 “It was a rewarding experience for all that participated,” said Patricia Mathews-Spaniol, McNair Scholars Program Director. “The donations do change lives.”

The donations filled to capacity one pick-up truck, one van, and three cars.
