Service groups and civic organizations

Generosity is one of the hallmarks of McHenry County. No matter what the need that might arise among residents, there always seems to be individuals or organizations to meet them. There is no shortage of agencies or groups to help. And most of them rely on volunteers to make their charitable works possible.

In our special section, "My McHenry County," we decided to take a look at the groups and volunteers who lift up others in their time of need - and who lift us all up in the process

"No matter how big and powerful government gets, and the many services it provides, it can never take the place of volunteers.” Those words from our late president Ronald Reagan ring as true today as when he spoke them more than 25 years ago.
