Community - Campus Day of Service

April 5, 2014

On Saturday, April 5th, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign kicked off National Volunteer Week with an inaugural Community-Campus Day of Service. Over 60 students, faculty and staff worked with six community partners on seven projects to complete pre-construction projects, community garden spring preparation projects, flyering in the community, reorganizing classrooms at Tap in Leadership Academy, cataloging choral literature, and preparing a Bee Garden. A big thank you goes out to all who helped on April 5!

Outreach Weekend Report - July 25-27, 2008

Weekend Summary
This weekend, a small group of volunteers constructed a ramp for an ice cream and coffee shop by the Village Theater. This shop will operate as a source of funding for the theater's youth programs. ESLARP was able to obtain donations from three central Illinois Home Depot stores, with the bulk of the donations coming from the Collinsville Home Depot, whose store manager was very excited to be able to contribute to a local project! The weekend ran smoothly despite the 95 degree weather, and we were able to complete the ramp by Sunday afternoon. Thanks to the volunteers who made it happen--Mike Andrejasich, Paul Herring, Noah Lenstra, Andy Harmon and Abby Harmon.
