Event Title: Clothing Drive
The UAB School of Dentistry’s SPEA chapter completed its second annual clothing drive benefitting Pathways, an organization that supports homeless women and children in Birmingham, AL. This school-wide event successfully collected 288 items of clothing, as well as toys, electronics, and other household items. The SPEA executive board members delivered the collected items to the shelter and even had a chance to speak with women who would benefit from the items. It was a unique and humbling way for students and faculty at UAB to learn more about the mission of SPEA while giving back to our local community.
