UHDPS Supports the March For Babies

March of Dimes

Houston, March 9, 2015 — The UH Department of Public Safety is proud to be associated with the Division of Administration and Finance in the March for Babies campaign.

DPS staff looks forward to raising funds for this campaign each year. During March and April, DPS and the A&F division will be busy with bake sales, selling candy and popcorn, and other initiatives.

"If every person would donate a minimum of $1, just imagine how far that could go in helping the March for Babies' mission," said Sharon Chavez, a DPS staff member helping to organize the fundraising campaign. "By volunteering or making a donation, you can help prevent premature birth and birth defects, and improve the health of moms and babies."

By contributing $24,290 in 2014, the University of Houston System ranked 32nd within the top 50 corporate teams who contributed. The A&F division contributed a little less than $5,000, which was the top contributing department on campus.

For cash or check contributions to the March for Babies through the UH DPS, contact Cindy Granier, Cydney Rax, Valarie Smith or another DPS staff member. Please contact Granier at for information regarding online registration to participate in the walk or to make an online donation.
