About Us

UTCARES is made up of students enrolled in the teacher preparation program at The College of Education at The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.

We participate in various community service events during the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters.

We volunteer our time at local schools, Head Start, and the UTRGV Child Development Center.
Every year, UTCARES donates over $2,000.oo worth of shoes, clothing, and toys during its annual Giving Elves Project!

UTCARES donates over 700 books to children in the community during the annual “Día del niño-día del libro” celebration.
