Staff Appreciation Week coming: Get ready to be appreciated
It’s that time of year again. Staff Appreciation Week returns to UCOP Sept. 29 to Oct. 3 with something for everyone! Save the dates and get ready to be appreciated.
The talent scouts are already out, searching for the talent you hide behind your professional workday demeanor. All talents are welcomed. In the past, the showcase has included acts as diverse as juggling, torch singers, violinists both country and classical, even operatic lip-synching. So don’t be shy.
Here’s the full lineup of the week’s activities:
Tuesday, Sept. 30, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.: Staff Appreciation Lunch on the Franklin fifth floor patio, featuring tacos with all the fixings and tabling by UCOP’s affinity groups.
Wednesday, Oct. 1, all day, in the Franklin building: In support of President Napolitano’s Global Food Initiative, UCOP is partnering with Stop Hunger Now, an international hunger relief agency that prepares food packages for children and families worldwide. It provides the bags and food, and we provide the labor, with the goal of filling 10,000 bags that day. All members of the Oakland-based community are encouraged to volunteer their time, if only for a few moments, to help OP meet its ambitious goal. Contact Paul Lechner at Paul.Lechner@ucop.edu if you’d like to sign up.
Friday, Oct. 3, 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.: The popular talent show returns to Kaiser Auditorium, featuring performers from UCOP’s Oakland-based community. The semi-annual Milestone Service Awards will also be presented, and wine and cheese will be served.
