Around the world, we celebrate the legacy and life of our loved ones and ancestors. We acknowledge that we honor them in our own daily lives and actions, and as Hallows Eve approaches, the EOPS/CARE/CalWORKs/Guardian Scholars Programs & Puente Learning Community are offering both a physical and digital altar/ofrenda for all campus community members to visit and contribute to. May these spaces offer every visitor and contributor a moment of pause in remembrance, gratitude, and acknowledgment of those who have gone before us, who remain in our hearts, and who continue to impact our lives. Please feel free to invite your respective students to visit and contribute to these altars.
The in-person altar/ofrenda will be constructed by our Puente Learning Community and will be up in the Intercultural Center (Bldg 4) through November 3, 2022. The digital altar/ofrenda created by the EOPS/CARE/CalWORKs/Guardian Scholars Programs can be found here: https://padlet.com/eopsskyline/diadelosmuertos.
For the digital altar: To add a picture/message click on the bottom right plus (+) sign and place the name of the person you would like remembered as “title”. You are also invited to add a message and/or picture of your loved one/ancestor/person that has passed that you want to honor in this virtual space.
