Thomas F. Zucker Memorial Golf Outing

The Annual VAC Golf Outing will be held on September 08, 2023, at River Heights Golf Course.  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. Stay tuned for more information.

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.

In past years it’s become a beloved drive-thru event, allowing families to enjoy a catered meal and dessert at home, while also providing a meal for someone in need through Meals on Wheels.

Our attendees, sponsors, donors, and past celebrity wait staff, who’ve become volunteers, have made our Meals for Moms a success for 14 years. 

This year our drive-thru event will be held on Friday, May 12th, 2023.

Any questions please call Taylor Tallitsch at 815-758-3932 ext. 244 for more information.

Hot & Steamy Valentine’s Campaign

During the month of February, local businesses partner with VAC for our Hot & Steamy Valentine fundraiser that benefits our Meals on Wheels clients. Throughout all the counties we serve, VAC has Valentine themed donation boxes at local restaurants, bakeries, grocery stores, and bars. Each dollar we collect from our Valentine boxes goes straight to Meals on Wheels and helps provide a meal to someone in need. Stay tuned to our social media pages for upcoming donation box locations.
