Opportunities to Give
Project Reach Donations
Project Reach was established to touch the lives of deserving students. Last year, at district seminars, we collected school supplies for the Harrisburg schools. Harrisburg, IL was hit by a tornado and many students lives were disrupted. The supplies provided by attendees at all seven district seminar events across Illinois made a significant difference to the Harrisburg community and in the daily lives of the students impacted by the tornado. Project Reach welcomes you to donate again in 2013: new school supplies, backpacks, college posters, gently used college guide books, ACT resources and other items appropriate for high school students. Please bring donations to the district seminar event. Learn more

Monetary donations will be collected (potentially including a 50/50 drawing) at the district seminar events. We invite you to bring a contribution to the district seminar. IACAC president, Todd Burrell (SIUE) has challenged all attending the district seminars to collect $1000 for this new scholarship. Learn more
