In recognition of Disability Awareness Month, Sauk Valley Community College will again for the second year, sponsor a disability awareness program on Wednesday, October 10 from 12:00-1:30 p.m. in the SVCC East Mall.
Interactive stations will be setup throughout the mall of daily barriers that individuals with a disability may face. These stations hope to raise awareness of how those with disabilities live. After visiting all stations, participants will be entered into a raffle for prizes as well.
Participants will also have a chance to meet with community organizations such as Illinois Department of Human Services Division of Rehabilitation Services, Northwestern Illinois Center for Independent Living, Serve Illinois and the Whiteside County Health Department as well as campus organizations learn more about disabilities and find out ways to get involved raising awareness.
This is a free event for SVCC students and the public. For more information, contact Ana Salgado, student activities coordinator, at 815-835-6432.
