If you’re wanting to make a difference in someone else’s life this Thanksgiving, you’ve got plenty of opportunities to do so right here in Birmingham. You can help stock area food pantries, be part of a Friendsgiving, or move your body at a Turkey Trot.
With over 19,000 students, you should not be surprised to hear that 20% of UAB students might not know when there next meal will be. Thanks to the Student Advocacy, Rights and Conduct staff those same students will no longer have to worry.
