IU Credit Union Supports Community Food DrivePosted: April 18, 2008
IU Credit Union Supports VITALPosted: April 9, 2008
IU Credit Union's Jacob Seibel presents a donation to VITAL at the Monroe Public Library
Recently, IU Credit Union took advantage of an opportunity to help advance the local community. A donation for fundraising initiatives was made to the VITAL program located at the Monroe County Public Library in downtown Bloomington.
The Monroe County Public Library's Volunteers in Tutoring Adult Learners (VITAL) program helps to improve the lives of adults in Monroe County. Their purpose is to help adults achieve functional literacy. For 30 years, VITAL has offered free and confidential one-on-one tutoring that covers various skills including math, reading, and speaking.
VITAL averages about 65 learners a week. They are paired with volunteers and meet for about two hours each week. Small groups of ESL (English as a Second Language) classes are also offered for practicing conversational English. In these groups, everyone shares in the learning experience since many participant backgrounds are present.
This April marks the 25th anniversary of the VITAL Quiz Bowl and Silent Auction. This is the program's annual fundraiser in which the public is invited to attend. The Quiz Bowl, taking place in the Library Auditorium, is a competition that is broadcast live on the Library Channel, CATS cable channel 3. While there, everyone can enjoy the Silent Auction in the Atrium as well. Come and bid on various items: celebrity autographs, jewelry, clothing, art, furniture, and more!
If interested in volunteering or would like more information, please contact Sue Murphy, VITAL Coordinator at
