DEC Help combat hunger at UCI by donating non-perishable goods during the eighth annual Clash of the Cans food drive. All goods collected will benefit UCI's FRESH Basic Needs Hub, a student-initiated project that ensures students' basic needs are met by providing resources, services, and support to help the campus thrive.
DEC The UCI Police Department will be accepting donations of new, unwrapped toys and teddy bears during this holiday season. Your generous gifts will be donated to help comfort children receiving care at UC Irvine Health and other Orange County children's organizations. The need is especially critical for children who have to be away from their homes and families during the holidays.

Every day, UC Irvine Medical Center patients require blood or platelets to help fight cancer, to replace what is lost in a trauma, or to treat a chronic disease. Your donation can make a huge difference in the life of someone here in Orange County. Appointments can be made online to donate at the campus student center or UCIMC.
