To the Editor:
Volunteer Center McHenry County recently received grants from two outstanding organizations in McHenry County: United Way of Greater McHenry County and the McHenry County Community Foundation. Thank you.
These organizations do an outstanding job reaching donors and telling the stories of what local nonprofit organizations are doing. They vet the organizations that apply for dollars, making sure all money awarded are spent appropriately and used wisely.
Thank you to the generous donors that give so nonprofit organizations are able to receive grants from our United Way and Community Foundation. These dollars make a tremendous difference in our ability to accomplish our missions. Please continue to support them.
Volunteer Center McHenry County was established in 1988 by United Way of McHenry County. In 2009, the center became a 501(c)(3). Its sole purpose is to resource the local nonprofit community. The Volunteer Center provides three areas of service:
• Information and referral, matching nonprofit volunteer needs with groups and individuals that are able to help.
• Professional development to nonprofit board members, volunteer managers and other nonprofit staff and volunteers.
• The McHenry County Human Race, a 5K walk/run that showcases the missions of participating organizations, offers volunteer recruitment, relationship building, and opportunities to encourage their supporters to raise money in support of their mission.
The Volunteer Center McHenry County, also known as Not-For-Profit Resources, is located at Prime Parkway in McHenry. For more information, visit www.volunteermchenrycounty.org, call 815-344-4483, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
