Event Details

 

College of Lake County is proud to partner with USA Today, Points of Light Foundation and the HandsOn Network for the nation's laregest day of service. Over 3 million Americans will serve the needs of others on Saturday, October 26th.  College students, faculty, staff and community members volunteer on this day to help non-profits in a variety of ways.
