SkillsUSA, Rotoract Club to host "Free 4 all"

Laramie County Community College students and their families are invited to spend a Saturday in October attending a “free-for-all” or more accurately a “Free 4 All.”

The third LCCC Free 4 All, an Americorps service event coordinated by LCCC’s Rotaract Club, will be an opportunity for members of the campus community to get goods and services for free.

The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 22, in the multipurpose room in the PE Building. Hundreds have attended this event in the past. A hot dog lunch will be available, and door prizes will be given away.

The LCCC chapter of SkillsUSA will provide free tire pressure checks and oil changes, but prior registration is required for the oil changes so that the right filters can be ordered.

Representatives from Needs, Inc. and Community Action will be on hand to inform students about the services these organizations provide.

Students in LCCC’s physical therapy program will provide chair massages, while students from Cheeks, a local beauty school, will cut hair of adults and children. Posture and blood pressure technicians will be on hand, and safety checks will be provided for child car seats.

Computer students will do repairs and virus checks on computers. Children’s clothes, toys and books will be available.

Many of the activities have been designed with children in mind, including a real fire truck and a bounce house. There will also be pumpkin decorating, fingerprinting, face painting and rock climbing.

Prior to the event, donations of children’s items including toys or furniture may be brought to the Americorps office at LCCC, Room 114 in the Business Building. Time may also be donated.

If you would like to volunteer, contact Lacie Shepherd at 985-710-6691, or Trista Wood Volunteering time will count toward students’ Golden Eagle Scholarship service hour requirements.
