Giving Thanks to Facilities and Operations Employees

November 23, 2021

Columbia University Facilities and Operations (CUFO) has much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving season. Over the past few months, each team member in CUFO has been put to the test as the organization worked collectively to prepare the Columbia community for a successful and safe return to full occupancy on campus this fall term. 

In recognition and to express gratitude for the unwavering dedication and commitment demonstrated, CUFO employees were offered the choice of food options organized by Columbia Dining, including a frozen turkey, vegetable lasagna, or vegan dish as a token of appreciation for the Thanksgiving holiday. Employees were also given the choice to support Columbia Community Service and donate their food gift to the West Side Campaign Against Hunger (WSCAH), helping CCS increase its impact by donating 551 turkeys to the WSCAH.

After a challenging year and a half, the organization is grateful to show gratitude to the employees who have gone above and beyond to make life at Columbia University safe within the new COVID-19 environment.
