Glenkirk - Volunteers working in a hallway

Volunteer

First and foremost, to our volunteers, families and supporters – thank you. You come through for Glenkirk and the individuals we serve every year. Your efforts help to make it possible for Glenkirk to continue to provide the quality, lifetime supports and services that the individuals in our programs have come to expect. Whether you volunteer your time or attended an event or donate money, please know that you have our gratitude. We simply couldn’t do what we do on behalf of people with intellectual disabilities without your support.

Getting involved has its rewards. Every time an individual we serve goes on a trip in the community to deliver Meals on Wheels to seniors or work at a business in the local community – you help make that possible. Every time an individual enjoys participating in community life by attending an exercise class or going to a Cubs game or a concert in the park – you help make that possible. Every time an individual gets the medical care they need to live an active, healthy life – you help make that possible. Every time an individual experiences the joy of living in a beautiful, well-maintained and safe home because of a recent home improvement project – you help make that possible.
