It’s time to celebrate another year of CommUniverCity!
On Wednesday, April 25, 5:00–7:30 p.m., we will come together to showcase some of CommUniverCity’s banner community projects and recognize remarkable people who have gone above and beyond to give back to our communities.
The event will be fair-style with interactive project stations led by San José State University faculty and students in partnership with community members. Come to eat some delicious tacos catered by a neighborhood business, win prizes that include an iPad, and meet the community members who ensure the success of our projects. Awards will be presented from 6:30-7:15 p.m.
We hope you will join us to learn more about CommUniverCity’s work in our neighborhoods.
Please register HERE for this event so we have a good count for ordering food.
