The Volunteer Center is grateful to the families, community members, sports teams, church and service groups and corporate organizations that came together at our annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service and Celebration on January 15th, sponsored by The Warner Institute and hosted by The Community House in Winnetka.
Working together they created dog treats, cards of support, Valentines, door hangers, toiletry kits — our always popular no-sew fleece blankets and scarves for the homeless — and more in support of local nonprofits including Grace Network, Holiday Heroes, Orphans of the Storm, CJE Senior Life and Night Ministry.
Cradles to Crayons also collected a truckload of hygiene items, diapers, wipes, pullups, school supplies, socks, underwear, clothing, shoes and books.
The Volunteer Center would like to thank our Sponsor and Site Host
for generously supporting community service and volunteerism!
The Volunteer Center welcomes this year’s MLK Day Lead Sponsor, The Warner Institute, a leading aesthetic and reconstructive surgery practice in Northfield. In addition to innovative treatments and a satisfied client list, Dr.Jeremy Warner was honored by the Volunteer Center in 2021 for his work as the director of their mission, The Face The Future Foundation, where he and his staff donate Dr. Warner’s life changing reconstructive services to patients in Nepal and also train surgeons there pro-bono on latest practices. The Warner Institute believes in service and community engagement, a true symbiotic partner of the Volunteer Center!
The Community House in Winnetka is a VC Community Partner and gathering place for the community and seeks to inspire lifelong learning, personal growth, and community spirit through enjoyable, engaging activities and meaningful shared experiences.
