Brock students give back to community during Reading Week

Published on February 25 2013


Not all Brock University students spent Reading Week on a beach, soaking up the sun.

Some 50 Brock students participated each day in Alternative Reading Week - Niagara, which had some sticking around close to home or volunteering abroad in South Carolina, the Dominican Republic and El Salvador.

Alternative Reading Week - Niagara is the local component of the overarching Alternative Reading Week program.
