Graduate Student Advisory Council Organizes Book Drive
The GSAC collected books for 14-18 year-olds to support the local community's One Stop Community Christmas. A consortium of Coles County social service agencies collaborated to bring donations of holiday gifts for families in need. Families were able to make one stop at the Mattoon Salvation Army and pick up holiday gifts collected with the help of many groups.
GSAC members collected from departments all over campus, sorted, and delivered over 150 books in support of this local effort.
