Rock Valley College is seeking community assistance to aid with campus cleanup efforts. The storm on Monday, which has been classified as an EF1 tornado, touched down on the RVC main campus behind the Woodward Technology Center and by the creek, causing significant damage and spreading debris throughout the college grounds. The College is looking for volunteers (18 years or older) from the community who would be willing to come out on Friday, August 14, from noon to 4 p.m., or Saturday, August 15, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Important instructions for volunteers:
On Saturday, a box lunch, water, and snacks will be available to all who volunteer to work. Any volunteers who are unable to work the entire day are still welcome and can leave after checking out with the area supervisor.
As this community’s college, we appreciate any assistance our community can provide at this time to restore our campus and ensure it is once again safe to welcome back students, faculty, staff, and visitors.
