Lend a helping hand in the Houston area as University of Houston-Clear Lake’s Student Leadership Institute sponsors its biannual Community Outreach Day, Feb. 10, 7:45 a.m. – 4 p.m., at various Houston area locations.

Students, faculty, staff and university friends are invited to participate in a variety of community service projects, including Habitat for Humanity in Baytown, the Environmental Institute of Houston at UH-Clear Lake and First Book, an international nonprofit organization that gives children from low-income families the opportunity to read and own their first new books.

In conjunction with First Book, the Student Leadership Institute and the Association for Childhood Education International student organization are also requesting book donations for the reading party that will be held during Community Outreach Day.

New or gently used picture books, small chapter book (50-200 pages), or science and social studies books appropriate for pre-kindergarten through junior high school children may be donated through Feb. 8. Donations may be taken to the university’s Office of Student Life, located in the Student Services and Classroom Building , Room 1204.
