Community Service Day - May 2, 2016 - Deaf Can Do It


Research shows that there are many benefits to community service including an increase in students' social development, motivation, engagement, and school attendance, as well as more positive lifestyle choices and behavior. At the encouragement of the Illinois Service Resource Center, Deaf students throughout the state of Illinois participated in a Community Service Day. The Deaf students in EIASE’s Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program chose to make “Cancer Care” Packages to distribute to the local cancer treatment center at SBLHC. 


The inspiration for this project comes from watching two of our staff members continuing their battle against this disease. The staff and students collected items of comfort and then included personal notes and pictures in each bag. The care packages were welcomed with smiles and thanks at the cancer center.
