Thomas F. Zucker Memorial Golf Outing

The Annual VAC Golf Outing will be held virtually September  1, 2020, through September 23, 2020.  The event was renamed the Thomas F Zucker Memorial Golf Outing in 2015 after the sudden passing of Voluntary Action Center’s Executive Director Tom Zucker.  The Golf Outing has become a highly anticipated event for local golfers and supporters of the Voluntary Action Center.

Meals for Moms

Meals for Moms is a well-loved family tradition. Held each year in early May, it is a major fundraising event for Meals on Wheels, as well as a great event for friends and family to gather and enjoy a meal together.

Our attendees, sponsors, donors, celebrity wait staff, and friends have made our Meals for Moms a success for 12 years. 

The proceeds from this event benefit Voluntary Action Center’s Meals on Wheels program. Click here for more information on event participation and sponsorship.

Emergency Meal Kit Distribution

Every winter Voluntary Action Center provides Emergency Meal Kits to Meals on Wheels clients in DeKalb and LaSalle Counties. Each Kit contains 3 meals of non-perishable, shelf-stable food to have on hand in case of bad weather. With your help, we can provide kits for all seniors in need.

Christmas Purse Project

VAC will host the Christmas Purse Project once again this year.  The project was established to brighten the day for many victims of Domestic Violence and Sexual assault in DeKalb County. Each year the support from our community grows showing us what a great community we live in!  VAC will collect purses filled with small gift items until December 16th, 2019 to donate to Safe Passage.
