U-E hosted its first ‘Thanks for Giving Harvest Festival’ Saturday. Hundreds of U-E families and students attended this fun-filled afternoon with the goal of bringing the community together. Besides games, crafts, and food, area organizations were available to talk with people about the services they offer.
Director of Diversity Equity and Inclusion for Union Endicott, Chris Murdock says he believes having events like this are crucial to building a strong community.
“These are community agencies that are connected to our school and our community these are things especially coming off the year, a year and a half of COVID it’s important that we’re connecting our families and our community to all the services that they may need that are out there and just bring it to light all of the services that are out there that are out there.”
Murdock, along with community school coordinators Kashif Summers, Marissa Derrick, and Brendon Doherty, planned and coordinated the event.
