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 68,549 hours, equivalent to 33 full time employees!
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
