This year, the USF Chapter of the United Faculty of Florida will be celebrating the Holiday Season with two events.

  • Our Annual Holiday Social will be tomorrow Tuesday, November 28, from 11 am to 2 pm, in the Marshall Center's Sabal Room (MSC 3700, on the third floor, just to the right and around the corner from Top of the Palms); all UFF USF employees, UFF members and non-members alike, are invited to attend. See the flyer for details.
  • The Annual Toy Drive conducted by the West Central Florida Federation of Labor will collect new, unwrapped toys for children ages 0 - 18. Toys can be brought to a Chapter Meeting or the Holiday Social (see above), to the Holiday Social, or delivered to the receptionist at the USF Tampa Department of Mathematics & Statistics (CMC342). The Children's Home Society of Florida has provided us with a list of gift ideas.
Here's to a happy holiday season.
