We Are Aggie Pride, a student-run philanthropy program that aims to collect emergency funds for UC Davis students in need, is hosting a series of events this week through Thursday.
The program is currently in its second year and is the first student-run organization of its kind on the West Coast.
This week’s events will include a “Change Challenge,” promoting first-year student donations in dining commons, which will last until Friday; “Doughnuts and Donations;” “Tiny Tacos, Mucho Impacto;” the “Get It, Got It, Give It” scavenger hunt; “Cupcakes on the Quad” with The California Aggie Marching Band-uh! and “Movie Night at Rock Hall.”
More details on these events and We Are Aggie Pride can be found at weareaggiepride.ucdavis.edu.
According to a Wednesday press release, to date, We Are Aggie Pride has raised over $58,000 in donations and sponsorships.
The release also states that University administrators will be present at some of the week’s events.
