DuPage Senior Citizens Council Seeking Emergency Volunteers
DSCC needs emergency volunteers to deliver meals to frail and homebound seniors in DuPage County.
Meals on Wheels are delivered 5 days a week, Monday through Friday, from 10:30am to 1:00pm. Deliveries typically take an hour.
Requirements to volunteer are a valid driver’s license, current car insurance, a background check and to attend a volunteer training that is provided at our central office located in Lombard.
In addition to Meals on Wheels drivers, DSCC is always in need of volunteers for our other services including visiting a senior through our Friendly Visit and Assistance and creating crafts and performing through our Intergenerational Activities.
If interested in delivering meals or any of our volunteer opportunities, visit our website at www.dupageseniorcouncil.org or contact DSCC at 630-620-0804 for more information.

19th Annual AIDS Run and Walk
Since its inception in 2001, more than 22,000 participants have converged to get moving against HIV/AIDS, raising $5.5 million to battle the HIV epidemic. AIDS Run & Walk Chicago raises awareness and funds for the AFC and 30+ CommunityDirect partners, with proceeds directly benefiting programs and services improving the lives of Chicagoans living with and vulnerable to HIV.
Together, we can end the HIV epidemic in Illinois by 2030!
The AIDS Run and Walk team are closely monitoring social distancing updates from city and state officials regarding events. An engaging and meaningful contingency plan is in place for Saturday, October 3rd, should they need to reimagine event day activities.
