18th Annual Make A Difference Day COVID safe Collection Drive

October 24, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Spring Cleaning in the FallThis annual collection drive sponsored by The Volunteer Center supports15 nonprofits and their specific item requests that make a huge difference to their clients. We are grateful to be working with The Highcrest/WJHS PTO to help us as volunteers and hosts of the new site for the day’s event — the Wilmette Jr. High School’s Parking Lot, 620 Locust Road in Wilmette. This is a quick but meaningful service activity that supports recycling with maximum impact. Everybody wins! In addition to individuals and families, service groups are encouraging their members to clean out their closets and drop off their gently used clothes, coats, boots, food and more on Saturday, October 24th between 9am and noon. Items must be marked for the nonprofit that has requested it. Nonprofits and the corresponding items they’ve requested can be found on our website, VolunteerCenterHelps.org. Particularly during this unusual 2020 year, Make A Difference Day will be a big benefit to both the nonprofit recipients and the donors who are looking for perfect matches for their goods. Questions?
