buy a brickThe Moraine Valley Community College Foundation has launched a limited commemorative opportunity to support students through its Buy-A-Brick program. The engraved bricks are being installed in the college’s Shakespeare Garden, adjacent to the Fine and Performing Arts Center on the main campus at 9000 W. College Pkwy. in Palos Hills.

Brick donations are $150 each with all proceeds supporting the Foundation’s efforts to provide student scholarships, faculty innovations, college programs, and emergency assistance funds for students. Engraving is up to three lines with 14 characters per line, including spaces and punctuation, on a 4×8 brick.

“These bricks make unique gifts,” said Kristy McGreal, Foundation executive director. “You can share a special message to show your support for Moraine Valley, honor a graduate, remember a loved one, recognize a special occasion, or pay tribute to someone who has made a lasting impression in your life. They make a perfect holiday gift for that hard-to-buy-for person, to celebrate an anniversary or even as a memorial to an ancestor.”
