Spotlight on Volunteer Center Community Partner: THE ROCK HOUSE
The Volunteer Center is proud to recognize the many ways our Community Partner The Rock House of Wilmette & Glenview makes a difference to local nonprofits and schools — including some Volunteer Center Nonprofit Partners — by sponsoring and hosting fundraising events, providing live music and entertainment, and donating auction items. Their generosity makes them an exemplary Community Partner — and their baristas make a mean cup of coffee too! Check out the list of organizations that have benefited from the generous contributions of THE ROCK HOUSE. Then stop by to see who’s playing and what’s brewing sometime soon!
Thanks to all the Volunteers Who Helped Make A Difference at our 2016 MLK, Jr. Day of Service
Hundreds of volunteers of all ages turned out on their day off to help the Volunteer Center, Kindness Connection and the Winnetka Community House celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at our 2016 MLK Day of Service on January 18th. Thanks to the great turnout, and a lot of hard work by dedicated volunteers, we provided vanloads of blankets for the homeless, food for the hungry, thoughtful gifts for those in need — and much more. Read More here to see photos, and for a complete list of the 20 nonprofits we supported with the help of the community this year. What a great way to warm up on a cold winter day!
Hundreds of Volunteers “Shared Their Bounty” This Thanksgiving
Thanks to hundreds of generous donors and volunteers, over 250 bags of food were distributed to low income families at Good News Partners on Thanksgiving morning. And the shelves at the New Trier Township Food Pantry were filled too. Both nonprofits — and the Volunteer Center — are grateful for such a giving community this holiday season.
