ASCLS once again will be giving back to the annual meeting host city with ASCLS Provides HOPE – Helping Other People Event. This year’s event, hosted by the ASCLS Promotion of the Profession Committee, will support Rush University Community Programs. The Rush Community Service Initiatives Program (RCSIP) was established in 1991 to create a network of community service programs that match Rush student interest and initiative with the social and healthcare needs of the Chicago population.
RCSIP's COMMUNITY SERVICE MISSION:
- Assess the need for potential services in the Chicago community that could benefit from the voluntary assistance of Rush students.
- Match these service needs with the students’ desire to be part of an active community service experience.
- Coordinate these activities to the mutual benefit of all.
- Evaluate the effects of community service experiences on the personal learning and development of the students.
We will be supporting RCSIP's annual RU Caring Back to School Health Fair. Volunteers will be collecting school supplies near the ASCLS Registration Desk to collect donations at the following times:
|Sunday, July 29||Monday, July 30||Tuesday, July 31|
