Waubonsee Hosts Conversation Café to Make a Difference

Now in its 24th year, “Make a Difference Day” began with a simple idea — put your own cares on hold for one day to care for someone else. For the seventh straight year, the Adult Literacy Project at Waubonsee Community College will take part in the nation’s largest single day of volunteering, with the Aurora Public Library, Oswego Public Library District, the Fox Valley United Way and Altrusa International of Fox Valley as its partners. 

Project volunteers will lead a Conversation Café from 10 to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 25, in room 160 of Waubonsee’s Aurora Campus, 18 S. River St. The event will give adults learning English an opportunity to practice their skills with other new English speakers. The participants will also be creating holiday cards for the Aurora Interfaith Food Pantry. 

While parents are attending the café, children 3 to 9 years old are invited to participate in stories and other activities. 

Each participating adult and child will receive a free book courtesy of Altrusa International of Fox Valley and the Waubonsee Adult Literacy Project.
