Thanks to Everyone in the Community Who Turned Out to Support Our 2018 MAKE A DIFFERENCE DAY on Saturday, October 27th!
Cars lined up all morning to drop off everything from diapers to dog food, bikes to blankets, and sportswear to school supplies for 15 outstanding nonprofits Saturday, October 27th in Winnetka. Families, schools and community groups from all over Chicago’s North Shore came together to support our 16th annual Make A Difference Day — and our nonprofits left with truckloads of donations they desperately needed. Make a Difference Day always makes a difference!
The Volunteer Center Sponsored TWO Ways for the Community to “Share Your Bounty” at Thanksgiving This Year
As always, when we asked for help, a generous community responded. For Thanksgiving this year the VC joined with 2 of our VC Nonprofit Partners to provide nutritious food to families right here in our community — and we exceeded our goals! Volunteers donated fresh produce and personal items to the NEW TRIER TOWNSHIP FOOD PANTRY in Winnetka during the week before Thanksgiving. Families and community groups also delivered almost 150 bags of groceries to families at GOOD NEWS PARTNERS in Rogers Park on Thanksgiving morning. We’re grateful to everyone who participated, by sharing generously with neighbors in need in our community. See you next year!
