The Learn More Center has several areas for volunteers this fall.  We always need volunteer tutors and can fit students in with our regular hours Monday from 9-5 p.m. or 9a.m.-7:30 p.m. Tue, Wed, & Thurs.  Special volunteer events are this Friday, Sep 7 at the literacy breakfast at First Brethren Church. We need preparation help, wait staff, dishwashers, and clean up from 6-10 a.m.  It would be great if we had someone to distribute posters around campus this week, as well.


There is also an opportunity to read to children at the Kid-O-Rama on September 15 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Honeywell Center.  The FIESTA will be held on Sep 22 from 4-9 p.m. and we can use set up, help with games, etc. during the event, and help with clean up. 


Please contact the LMC at 982-6138 or email Deb at dblearnmore@mchsi.com for more information or to volunteer.



The Town Life Center needs student volunteers to clean out their basement – strong people would be great!  To volunteer, contact Jenae Renz at 982-6115. 


The Wabash Red Cross office has a number of volunteer opportunities throughout the year!  They are looking for 1-2 students to serve on their advisory board (which meets once a month for an hour) – great experience for social work or non-profit management students.  The Red Cross also needs volunteers for their disaster relief team and emergency notification system to serve military families.  All volunteers will be trained and service can take place right on campus.  To find out more, contact Mitch Figert at arcross@kconline.com.
