ABA News - ABA Coordinates Food Drive

For many years, ABA has supported the campus-wide California State Employees Food Drive, the annual campaign that seeks donations to supply local food closets for many years. This year, the Sustainability Team from Facilities Management takes charge of the campus campaign. The team will handle logistical support, such as the provision of containers and pick-up and delivery of donations from across the campus.

To jump start this year's campaign, the team launched a call to action, distributing emails and flyers, and conducting activities in the library quad. They hope to make this year's food drive the most successful in campus history. The email reminds others why such efforts are important. Read more.

Behind The Scenes:
ABA Volunteers

The beginning of each semester brings with it new opportunities, challenges and, most importantly, new students. ABA offices do their best to prepare with extra staff, extended hours and additional services to help pre-empt potential student frustrations.

One of ABA's most successful strategies for meeting first week demands is through volunteer assistance. This edition of Behind the Scenes focuses on the individuals who volunteer their time to assist in other offices - why do they do it and what are the rewards? Yes, there are many! Read more.
