Members of Students in Philanthropy at the University of Texas of the Permian Basin will host a ceremony Tuesday to award nearly $16,000 to 11 local nonprofit organizations in the UTPB Mesa Building.

Students in Philanthropy encourages a connection to the community and supports a desire to help others through charitable giving, and over the course of the year, 19 student leaders worked tirelessly to raise money to support worthy organizations.

This year they sold t-shirt sponsorships, hosted a car wash, and partnered with a Midland bakery to sell sweet bread. 

For more information, call Cristy Batte, at 432-631-5698.
