The Kenney Center's annual UCARE Day is set for Sunday from noon to 3 p.m. in Memorial Fieldhouse.

UCARE Day is the annual free carnival for local kids and their families. The first UCARE Day was in 1998. Student leaders planning the event are Alexa Steriti '17 and Jacqueline Sharry '18 (both were leaders last year, too).

Greek organizations involved include Sigma Delta Tau, Delta Delta Delta, Alpha Delta Lambda, Alpha Phi Omega, Kappa Alpha and Phi Iota Alpha. Union Pride, Campus Kitchens, Fencing Club, Society of Women’s Engineers, and African Student Association are also participating, as well as athletic teams like men's hockey, men’s soccer, football, and men’s and women's basketball.

There will be tables with activities such as face painting, games, and arts and crafts. Athletics team members will be playing various games with the kids in addition to bounce houses, a photo booth, cotton candy and pizza. Stewart's Shops has also donated ice cream for the event.
