Taken from the invitation letter from Br. Juan R. Acuna C.PP.S. of Calumet College of St. Joseph :
On September 18th and 19th, of 2013, from 10:00am – 4pm, Calumet College of St. Joseph will be hosting its 2nd Annual “Operation Raise Awareness” Volunteer Fair. This event is being held on two separate days so that we can include more organizations and reach a greater number of students and community members. Service is at the heart of our university and we’re hoping that by bringing different non-profit organizations together to celebrate volunteerism we will strengthen our mission and engage our students and community members in a deeper understanding of the meaning behind the service they take part in...It is our hope that “Operation Raise Awareness” will lead to a better understanding of the needs of various organizations, as well as a greater awareness of the actions being taken to address different social issues within Northwest Indiana.
