Thank you, The Center for Nonprofit and NGO Studies at NIU, for choosing VAC as a recipient of a grant organized by students in Anna Mary Walker's NNGO 301: Philanthropy and Fundraising class.

Twenty-one local organizations applied. Selecting the awards was an involved process: two rounds of students reviewing applications and using the rubric established and shared with applicants narrowed down the list to 10 and then five. This process included much discussion and debate. Students did a deep dive into the top five applicants before voting to invite 3 to the classroom for presentations. At this stage, students discussed and debated before the final vote for the top winner. Whoever received the second highest number of votes receives the second award.

VAC is fortunate to have such great partnerships with our DeKalb community!

As we reflect on Mother's Day yesterday, we are reminded that volunteers are just like moms: they play vital roles in nurturing, supporting, and caring for others, making the world a better place through their selfless acts of love and kindness.

Thank you, staff and volunteers, who served fruited chicken salad, ranch pasta salad, mixed fresh fruit, a croissant, banana cream pie, and milk to 150 clients yesterday!

Teachers play a critical role in educating and shaping our children into the future leaders of our country. These kind, patient, hard-working, dedicated, and understanding professionals help mold and guide our children in a positive direction. We entrust our children with teachers during the school year; they play a pivotal role in their daily lives.

Thank you, teachers!
