Celebrating Thanksgiving With Makr!

From Coworking to Co-Feasting!

On Friday, we hosted a very special Friendsgiving for The Yard community, family and friends! Of course there was turkey, ham and everything you could ever want in a Thanksgiving feast, but what made the night extra special was celebrating with such a wonderful, vibrant community!

Members of The Yard: Williamsburg had the opportunity to meet members from across the river from The Yard: Herald Square, Flatiron and Lower East Side.

Holiday Designs With Makr

To top it off, our member and friends at Makr, a creativity app for custom designing and personal branding, decorated the space with their holiday placemats, place cards and “Eat, Drink & Be Thankful” koozies! Everyone left the event happily stuffed and with food to-go in Makr’s build-your-own boxes.

Giving Back With BUILD

Friendsgiving was an opportunity for us to bring new friends into the fold. The Yard recently partnered with BUILD to assist with their entrepreneurship programs for high school students. The Yard has nominated members of the community as mentors for BUILD’s programs to provide guidance to high school students as they develop their own business plans and gain leadership skills.

We were very excited to have representatives from BUILD join us on Friday to talk about their mission with members of the community. Just a month ago, BUILD launched their NYC program and has implemented programs for 540 high school freshmen.

We are incredibly thankful for our family at The Yard and can’t wait to share memories together well into the new year! Happy holidays!
