The public is invited to attend the Class of 2015’s mid-term presentations about the five local non-profit agencies they are working with, which range from health care to outer space. Join MCLP on Saturday, December 6, 2014 from 8:30–10:30 a.m. at Parke Regency Hotel and Conference Center.
MCLP’s 2014 project with The Baby Fold has become the “gift that keeps on giving.”
MCLP participants and local community members participate in annual poverty simulation.
Poverty is a topic avoided by many, particularly those without firsthand knowledge of its struggles and stressors. However, poverty in the U.S.—and in Central Illinois—is real and devastating to those who live it day by day. Recognizing the conditions and systemic causes of poverty, bringing awareness to the issue, and doing one’s part to reverse its negative impact is the work of socially and culturally responsible citizens.
