Colleges unite to recruit volunteers

From the Register-Mail:

Three Knox County institutions of higher learning are uniting to increase awareness of two local volunteer opportunities.

Through the combined efforts of Carl Sandburg and Knox Colleges and the University of Illinois Knox County Extension, Knox County 4-H and the CSC Literacy Coalition will be highlighted at a recruitment event at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 11, in the Sanderson Room at the Galesburg Public Library.

Training sessions for prospective literacy tutors are scheduled for Jan. 17, 24 and 31 at George Davis Hall at Knox College. Those who cannot attend all of the set sessions may complete their training at other sessions scheduled throughout the year.
