PALS Typhoon Haiyan Relief Update – Thank You! by uchastingspals

Selling lumpia on The Beach for typhoon relief!

After tragedy struck the Philippines early last November, PALS quickly organized to raise money to contribute to Typhoon Haiyan relief. With your help, we were able to make a small difference.

Together, we were able to raise over $1,000, all of which helped the West Bay Pilipino Multi-Service Center bring food and supplies directly to victims of the typhoon. We were really blown away by the response: those who flocked to buy our lumpia on The Beach (some even donating way more than we asked for),  those who contributed food and clothes to send abroad, and those who donated to our campaign online.

Even though it was around finals time, we’re proud that the Hastings and PALS community still contributed time and money to the relief efforts. Thank you so much to anyone who donated or merely supported our cause.

For more information on our relief efforts or if you’d like to help even more, contact us at pals@uchastings.edu.

PALS Post-Break General Meeting: March 15th by uchastingspals

Hey PALS. Right around now that euphoria is setting in, what with spring break in progress. The exhilaration of seeing a whole week standing between us and 198 could make anyone forget that more is waiting just around the corner. There’s going to be a lot of bummed out students on Sunday as the reality of class strikes home.

Luckily we won’t be among them. Because we have something they don’t have. A bunch of PALS to make that transition into school a little less painful. That’s right, PALS has another General Meeting on TUESDAY March 15. At NOON, in room B.

This is an important one, this is ELECTIONS. Please come by, represent PALS, and help select next year’s Executive Board. We’ll also be giving the low down on PALS’ spring party: MASSKARA. Last year’s Masskara event was a huge success, and judging by how awesome this year’s PALS have been, the third annual Masskara will be even better.

So come get some munchies, participate in the democratic process, and tell us how awesome your spring break was. And get your free hugs.
