“We’re so pleased to work with our neighbors and friends from the Ismaili Center on this annual effort to help people in need,” said Jay Neal, associate vice president of UH at Sugar Land. “We invite and encourage all to join us.”

This is the third year the instructional site has come together to donate non-perishable food items for those in need. The donations for this effort will benefit the East Fort Bend Human Needs Ministry.

Donation bins are located in the AMG rotunda, Brazos Hall near the elevators and near the security office, and College of Technology building near the elevators and near the reception desk.

The Ismaili Center will be accepting all drop-offs of donated goods on Wednesday, Dec. 1 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. (1700 First Colony Blvd., Sugar Land 77479). KTRK Channel 13 will be broadcasting live during that time period.
