Learn More Center

Learn More Center gets fundraising help from MU marketing class

You can help the Learn More Center in its mission to help adult learners who want to make a difference in their lives.

The center, with sites in North Manchester and Wabash, offers help for those seeking adult basic education, a high school equivalency diploma, college prep help, career readiness, instruction in English as a second language and becoming a U.S. citizen

A marketing class at Manchester University is helping the center raise money as it strives to offer “The Start of Something Better.”

The Giving Tuesday campaign runs through Tuesday, Nov. 27.

Opportunities to support the Learn More Center include making a donation on its website, http://learnmorecenter.org/wp/, and the students’ donation jars at North Manchester businesses, including Dairy Queen, Grand’s Ice Cream, KenapocoMocha, Main View Inn, Mr. Dave’s and New Market.

Here are some examples of what donations can support:

  • $25 provides training materials for a volunteer literacy tutor.
  • $100 provides study books and High School Equivalency testing fees for one student.
  • $500 provides instructional materials for five literacy students.

    Donations can also be sent to The Learn More Center, P.O. Box 272, North Manchester, IN 46962.
    All services are provided free to students, and the not-for-profit, tax-exempt corporation relies on private donations, foundation grants and Workforce Development assistance.

    Other members of Professor Beth Driscoll’s Principles of Marketing class are working with CrossFit Relativity in Wabash.

    The students are helping CrossFit reach out to area businesses to spread the word about discounts offered for memberships.  The goal is to increase awareness about the Crossfit, Wellness and high-intensity interval training (HIIT) programs and help build memberships for small, locally owned business.

    CrossFit also offered a free on-campus HIIT and Wellness session for students at Manchester University.
