GOT STUFF? Get Ready to Make A Difference!
The Volunteer Center (VC) will sponsor its 10th annual Make A Difference Day on Saturday, October 27nd from 9 am-12 pm at the Indian Hill Train Station in Winnetka. This year, representatives from 17 nonprofits will be on hand to collect much-needed items.
Another Successful MAKE A DIFFERENCE DAY for the Volunteer Center and 15 of Our Nonprofit Partners!
Make A Difference Day has long been one of the Volunteer Center’s most important annual Days of Service, and Saturday October 22nd was no exception. Cars lined up on a beautiful Fall morning to donate truckloads of valuable items to 15 nonprofits who were grateful to receive them. Many thanks to everyone who turned out to Make A Difference — and make it a great day! Check out our photo gallery here.
Happy Holidays — and Happy Volunteering — from The Volunteer Center
The coronavirus has made this an unusual holiday season, and is challenging local nonprofits in new ways. But their mission is more important than ever, especially during the holidays, and many of our nonprofit partners are in need of volunteers. We will post holiday opportunities as they come to us, so check this page regularly. We also encourage you to search through our list of nonprofits, and if you find an organization that you would like to support you can also contact them directly through our website to let them know you’re interested in volunteering. Wishing all volunteers a safe, healthy and happy holiday season!
Looking for Young Adult Volunteers or Interns?
If you are a nonprofit recruiting a Summer or Special Project or Gap Year Intern — or high school, college or post-grad student volunteers — click here to add your nonprofit to our 2016 listing of Volunteer & Internship opportunities for young adults. This listing will be featured on our website very soon.
Looking to Volunteer This Summer?
School’s out — but most of our Nonprofit Partners are still hard at work serving those in our community and around the world who rely on them for support and assistance all year. Just to get you started, read more to find some VC Nonprofit Partners who are looking for volunteers of all ages during the summer. But if you don’t see something on this list don’t stop there! We have more than 150 Nonprofits on our site that need volunteers — but don’t always have time to post their opportunities! — so make sure you search the whole site! If you see an opportunity or a Nonprofit that you might be interested in, you can contact them directly through our site and find out how you can help.
Looking for Ways to Make A Difference This Holiday Season?
It’s not necessarily too late to volunteer some time during the holidays. While some of the opportunities we highlight here may have passed already, if you still have time or money to give many organizations are still looking for help. In particular, check out the opportunities to serve at a local soup kitchen or nonprofit whose mission is to feed the hungry — especially at this time of year. Our goal is to help you bring a little holiday joy to as many people as possible! Happy Holidays to all volunteers from the Volunteer Center!
