Kaskaskia College AmeriCorps Students Collecting School Supplies


The 2017-18 Kaskaskia College AmeriCorps Team is currently collecting school supplies for some local grade schools.  The drive will be held September 18 through September 28 at the KC Main Campus and at all extension centers.  School supplies needed include paper (loose leaf ruled paper), notebooks, pencils (regular and mechanical) , pens (black, blue and red), crayons, glue, markers, rulers (no metal edges), erasers, small scissors, glue sticks, construction paper, paints and brushes, highlighters, folders and colored pencils. 


The students are currently assisting in many local elementary schools, tutoring and mentoring children grades kindergarten to eighth grade in English and math.


The AmeriCorps Pledge reads:  “I will get things done for America-to make our people safer, smarter, and healthier.  I will bring Americans together, to strengthen our communities.  Faced with apathy, I will take action.  Faced with conflict, I will seek common ground.  Faced with adversity, I will persevere.  I will carry this community with me this year and beyond.  I am AmeriCorps member, and I will get things done.” 


According to Wendy Blythe, Sponsor for AmeriCorps, “The 2017-18 Kaskaskia College AmeriCorps students are working in many of our local elementary schools. We would appreciate your donations”
