**The East Alton United Methodist Church (across the street from East Alton Middle School) is in need of volunteers to help with their Big Wednesday Program, which is an after school tutoring program every Wednesday for students in kindergarten through 8th grade. This is a great opportunity to help your community and earn service hours. If you are interested in volunteering please check your email for the church's contact information.
