APcares: Having a Heart for Women

Academic Partnerships staffers wore their hearts on their sleeves recently for the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women® day. Participants paid to parade their scarlet shades and bought balloons as a fundraiser, contributing money to local and national efforts to raise awareness about heart disease being the #1 killer of women.

APcares: Lending Holiday Sparkle to Genesis Women's Shelter Families

Academic Partnerships wrapped up another opportunity to brighten the holidays for Dallas' Genesis Women's Shelter & Support in December 2016 by adopting three families. Through the generous donation of toys, bedding, clothing, and even a play tent for one special 8-year old, APcares filled each family's wish list—with gift cards left over to share with other needy residents.
