Members of the women’s basketball team at the University of Arkansas, in collaboration with Project Unify, have extended an invitation to all students, faculty and staff from the university -- as well as to members of the community -- to attend the Veterans Appreciation Breakfast, held at Bud Walton Arena.

The breakfast hopes to bring community members together so they can show their gratitude for the soldiers who have fought to protect citizens of the United States and their freedoms.

"We are inviting our fellow students -- those on campus and those throughout our community -- to join us for a Veterans Appreciation Breakfast at Bud Walton Arena," Jailyn Mason, member of the women’s basketball team, said. "We want to hold this event to connect with the community and give back to those who fought for our freedoms."

The breakfast is scheduled 9-11 a.m. Friday, Dec. 9, and will take place at the Bud Walton Arena’s south concourse. The event does not cost anything to attend, and food will be provided by Arkansas’ women’s basketball team.

The breakfast is the first public event that Project Unify has organized.
