Community - Campus Day of Service

April 5, 2014

On Saturday, April 5th, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign kicks 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 20!

Weekend Summary
Thank you all for participating this weekend. You guys were such a great group for my last ESLARP trip, and by the complements I'd heard over the weekend, we really impressed the members of both East St. Louis and Brooklyn communities. Here's a quick summary of what was accomplished: SENDO, ESL-neighborhood cleanup Opal's House, ESL-interior painting, woodwork polishing, and carpet removal Eagle's Nest, ESL-outdoor cleanup Lessie Bates Center,ESL-sorting items from a shed and interior painting Dunham House, ESL-sorting and archiving Ms. Dunham's possessions Quinn Chapel, Brooklyn-Yard Cleanup and interior painting Southern Tabernacle Church, Brooklyn-Yard Cleanup and Baptismal Pool painting Lovejoy School, Brooklyn-Cleanup and trash removal around the school grounds ARCH 401 Class-Park Assessments in East St. Louis So in conclusion, nice work to you all! And since our group was all over the place, I did not get a chance to get to all the sites to document our awesomeness. So if you are willing to share, I'm looking for any cool photos you may have taken. by Bridgette Richardson
