More than Volunteering: The Opportunity to Impact a Life!
We want to thank and acknowledge our 4,000 volunteers for their dedicated support of our mission to end homelessness. Last year DuPagePads volunteers donated 66,868 hours, equivalent to 32 full time employees!
Recognizing 30 years of service as an agency, we appreciate your commitment and care make it possible to provide 43,099 nights of shelter and 146,112 meals last year for people who might otherwise go without safety, sustenance and support. Through your partnership in our solution to end homelessness, last year 348 individuals were able to obtain a place to call “home”. We are grateful for your service.
In this milestone year, we want to thank those that have been volunteering for more than 20 years. Click HERE to see a list

Why I Volunteer
Why I Volunteer – Allan
“I feel the appreciation of our guests, the pleasure of seeing the volunteers working together and feel the approval of my parents, who themselves were very giving of others.” – Allan Carter, 2012 DuPagePads Adult Volunteer of the Year.
Why I Volunteer – Desi
“When I volunteer, I see more than a homeless person, I see a heart. Being friendly with a smile goes a long way” – Desiree “Desi” Faulkner Watson, 2012 DuPagePads Youth Volunteer of the Year.
Why I Volunteer – Kenny
“People ask me why I continue to do this at 90 years old and it goes back to my belief that everybody needs to do a little to help out…and I like making people smile.” – Kenny
