Join Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG) and the Student Conservation Association on Saturday, November 5th to Restore Tompkins Square Park!
Located in the heart of the East Village, Tompkins Square Park is an active community green space which hosts local concerts and festivals and provides families with playgrounds, handball courts, and basketball courts. Flower beds surrounding the central lawn bring color to the East Village each spring. Tompkins Square Park is a much-loved community resource, but with reduced staff the park needs the help of volunteers to keep their gardens beautiful year-round.
***This event is open only to Mitsubishi UFJ employees and family members.***
