The University of Arkansas Hope-Texarkana Fine Arts Club is sponsoring a military service member holiday care package drive. The care packages will be sent to deployed Arkansas Guardsmen and Reserves from the Texarkana area.


According to a press release, all donations must be delivered to the UAHT Fine Arts Club by November 14, 2017. Donations can be taken to the Hope or Texarkana campuses.

  • Hope campus, 2500 South Main, Hope, AR, 71801
  • Texarkana campus, 3501 U of A Way, Texarkana, AR, 71854

A  list of items the troops would love to receive is below. Please note this is a gift drive, not a canned food drive. Troops are in great need of toiletries or other small goodies from home to add some cheer to their holiday season.

Also, if you would like to sponsor the postage cost of a package, the cost is $16.95 each. Please make checks payable to: UAHT Fine Arts Club.
