UC Riverside Staff Assembly brought together staff members for events including crocheting, building stuffed bears, and a pet adoption fair as part of “Thank Goodness for Staff Week.”

A series of in-person and virtual free events were held from Monday, April 22, to Friday, April 26. They included free coffee and donuts with crotchet outside Hinderaker Hall; a chance to build a stuffed Scotty bear on the lawn; and online informational sessions on cooking and stretching.

Staff Assembly holds the annual weeklong celebration to offer staff members a chance to take a break and enjoy a variety of fun activities.

“It was so great to see staff from all over the university participate in this year's Thank Goodness for Staff Week activities,” said Erika Leon, Staff Assembly president. “The events were a fun way to say thank you to all our staff for all they do.  Thanks to our Staff Assembly board and our campus partners for helping to make this event a success."
