Warm Welcome 2021
[December 15, 2021]
The USF Department of Psychology has been supporting local refugee families during the winter holidays for 20 years and this year was our most successful to date. Through the Warm Welcome Donation Drive, the USF Psychology Student Diversity Committee and the USF Psychology Faculty Diversity Committee received $1142 worth of new donated items (everything that the families asked for!) and another $975 of monetary donations that were converted into gift cards. We are honored to be part of such a generous and caring community of scholars. Thank you to all who participated, including the awesome families.
