On Sunday, Sept. 19, graduates from the Class of 2020 were honored in a Commencement ceremony in the stadium after an in-person Commencement in May 2020 had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Holiday Sharing Program Expands
The Syracuse University employee Holiday Sharing Program is partnering with PEACE Inc. and the Salvation Army to make the season brighter for local families. University departments and groups are invited to register now to participate in the program, which provides gifts, food, toys and more to families in need.
Participation options through PEACE Inc. include purchasing gifts for an assigned family, providing a basket of household supplies or donating food. PEACE Inc. will assign families to participating departments.
Individuals, departments or groups may also elect to donate food or toys to the Salvation Army. The items will be distributed at the organization’s annual Christmas Bureau event on Dec. 23 at the Oncenter.
For full details on each program and to register your group or department to participate, visit the University’s Holiday Sharing website. The deadline for departments to sign up is Nov. 30.
The Syracuse University Holiday Sharing program is purely voluntary. In 2014, 45 university departments participated.
