VC Board members celebrate a successful 2012 Make A Difference Day


In spite of the cold, thousands with warm hearts poured into the Winnetka train station parking lot to donate much-needed items to local nonprofits.  

Special thanks to Highcrest School in Wilmette, Crow Island in Winnetka and the New Trier High School Baseball team for vans filled with everything from baby blankets to baseball gloves!  

And of course, we couldn’t have done it without the help and support of our dedicated Volunteer Center Board members!

  • ChildServ
  • Connections for the Homeless
  • Evanston School Children’s Clothing Association (ESCCA)
  • Glencoe Community Garden
  • Hadley School for the Blind
  • Infant, Inc.
