All Are Invited to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, January 19, 2015
Volunteers of all ages and abilities are invited to join the Volunteer Center and its co-sponsors at our annual MLK, Jr. Day of Service, benefiting 13 local nonprofits. This year we will also celebrate the 50th anniversary of Dr. King’s visit to the Winnetka Village Green. This is a great family-friendly community event — and a fun way to make a difference.
Thank You for Giving Back During the 2014 Thanksgiving Holiday!
Thank you for helping the Volunteer Center provide food to low income families this Thanksgiving. The New Trier Township Food Pantry was stocked with fresh produce for its clients and nearly 150 families at Good News Partners in Rogers Park were provided bags, baskets and boxes of food to help them get through another week and feed their families.
Special thanks to the generosity of the Winnetka-Northfield Rotary Club members, Skokie School in Winnetka, Avoca School in Glenview, the Service Over Self (SOS) Club in Wilmette, the board of The Volunteer Center, and dozens of families throughout the northeast metro Chicago area.
Give the gift of warmth by donating to the 6th annual Warming Hearts and Hands program
Please join Make It Better Foundation and the Volunteer Center to help give new coats, hats, gloves and scarves to over 1,000 men, women and children during the holidays. Drop off by December 19th at the VC (in Skokie School, Winnetka) or by December 21st at 2 other locations.
