The University of New Mexico’s Staff Council hosts a staff recognition luncheon to celebrate Homecoming week.

“UNM staff want to celebrate homecoming as a community,” said Staff Council President Crystal Davis. “The great thing about Staff Council is that we look at not only what we can provide for staff, but also the UNM community as a whole. Staff is comprised of alumni, current and future students and we look forward to celebrating with our fellow Lobos.”

The event will be held from noon to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 13 at Dominguez Plaza, just south of Zimmerman Library. There will be a Frito Pie luncheon for only $5 and Staff Council will be giving away more than two dozen door prizes. Prizes will include some great Lobo goodies donated by staff from across campus.

Along with the celebration, Staff Council is also using the luncheon as an opportunity to collect donations for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of New Mexico and the APS Homeless Project. Organizers will be accepting travel size toiletries and toilet paper for the two organizations.

“We’d like to use this occasion to help those in our community who need our support. While we enjoy the good fortune of being part of UNM, we can also provide an opportunity to give back to people in Albuquerque who are less fortunate,” Davis said.

All staff is welcome to attend this event.
