SIU-C’s Touch of Nature received a generous donation today (Thursday) from the S-I-U Credit Union. An oversized 10-thousand dollar check was presented to Touch of Nature’s Executive Director J-D Tanner, who said it is very rewarding to be recognized. Kim Babbington, is the Vice President of Community Outreach for the SIU Credit Union, and with misty eyes, said the Credit Union feels that the work of Touch of Nature is very important.
The funds are earmarked for the Dawg Days program. A special bonding program held each August at Touch of Nature, for incoming SIU Freshmen.
This year’s Dawg Days program is scheduled for August 11th through August 14th.
