Fall class LJ497, ASPS seven-member class along with their instructor visited Daybreak Shelter in Joliet Monday night. It is run by Catholic Charities with lots of help from churches and volunteer groups. Our class presented Daybreak with a check for over $1300.00 and $800.00 in new items requested by the center. The class designed the project, collected money and goods from businesses, family and friends, and went there to deliver the funds/goods and took a tour of the facilities. Most of the students brought family members with as well. We all thought the facility was clean, well organized and important to the community.
The class exceeded their goal by 40%. I think you can be proud of the ASPS program and what this class accomplished as its applied research project.
