Students share their gratitude for donors at Sprinksgiving event
More than a thousand Santa Clara University students came together Wednesday for the second annual Sprinksgiving to celebrate those who help make a world-class education at SCU possible. The event is aimed at raising awareness about the impact of donations on campus and also provides a meaningful connection between students and donors. Students signed a giant thank you card, and enjoyed turkey sandwiches, a nod to bringing the gratitude of Thanksgiving into the spring season.
"We want to thank the campus community for all their support for this event and throughout the year," says Katherine Nicholson, class giving officer. "The generous support of our donors and gratitude of our students allow SCU to thrive."
Balloons were also delivered to the 350 SCU faculty and staff members who have donated to the University so far this calendar year.
