KAUST Social Responsibility  

Sharing is Caring 2021 - Volunteers can return for 6th annual campaign

Sharing is Caring 2021

KAUST Social Responsibility invites the KAUST community to share the joys of the season with our neighbors during Ramadan and Eid Al Fitr.  The sixth annual Sharing is Caring campaign will provide food hampers, educational gifts and messages of celebration for our neighbors during this most important time of the year, in partnership with charitable associations in the Jeddah region.

Funding contributions will be most welcome. Display hampers will be placed around KAUST, with representatives from Al-Bir and Social Responsibility.

In addition, with the support of Health, Safety & Environment (HSE), we have been able to arrange an opportunity for volunteers to pack food hampers, in hourly slots, on Thursday, April 8 from 3:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.  We are permitted 20 volunteers per slot – please click the links below to register for your preferred time.
