Care Packages for Seniors

The Crossings Senior Living community needs your support. Create simple and fun care packages for seniors to show them we care! Make sure to include a thoughtful, handwritten note in your package along with any items you think they'd like to receive. Please don't include candles, hard candy, or gum.

One care package will count for 1.5 community service hours. To arrange drop off and get credit, please email communityservice@bap-uhcl.org

Bay Area Turning Point Donations

UHCL's chapter of Beta Alpha Psi has long been a supporter of Bay Area Turning Point, a women's shelter. This semester is no different despite the new challenges brought about by the pandemic. To get much needed essentials, BATP has asked us to donate items through Amazon. This can be done in 4 easy steps.

  1. Follow the link and click on the image to be directed to Amazon

  2. Sign in and buy the items

  3. Email us the confirmation order (save as pdf, screenshot, snipping tool, etc)

  4. Email us the delivery confirmation once the items have been delivered

Community service hours will be awarded based on the items you decide to donate. The order and delivery confirmation can be emailed to reportingdirector@bap-uhcl.org so hours can be recorded. For any questions, email communityservice@bap-uhcl.org
