The GECU Foundation is proud to support the UTEP Food Pantry that offers emergency food assistance to UTEP students who are struggling to buy necessities. And we are dedicated to helping students overcome this.
In December 2019, the UTEP Food Pantry campaigned to raise $4,000 to support students facing food scarcity for an entire semester. The GECU Foundation matched the $4,000 goal in January, doubling the food pantry’s goal and allowing it to support students for an entire year! We hope that this brings peace of mind to students so they can focus on what matters most.
Located at Memorial Gym, room 105, the UTEP Food Pantry accepts in-person donations of nonperishable food and toiletries. You can also donate online by clicking here.
