We want you to volunteer! 

 1 Week 1 Deed 1 Cause


November 5-11

If you love your freedom, here is a way to say THANK YOU to our Illinois Heroes who took the Oath to protect us and our Country! Serving Those Who Served is a one week program where you, your co-workers, family, church, civic club, scout troop can help your local veterans and or veteran organizations.

Paint a wall, assist with an event, visit our heroes in our Veterans home, the opportunities are endless!
