McKendree University’s Lyn Huxford Center for Community Service (CCS) is off to a running start.  Weekly programs are up and going five days a week with eight different programs serving the community.  CCS started the year with Into the Streets where about 500 people from McKendree’s community made their mark on 26 agencies. The CCS group completed their retreat at DuBois Center doing team courses and group activities. The athletic department seized an opportunity to work with Adaptive Sports Soccer Camp in Granite City, and the Art Club coordinated a Bowl-A-Thon in the Quad to benefit Empty Bowls, coming during Hunger and Homelessness Week.
