Some volunteers participate in one-time serves, while the majority connect with a long-term role, serving for a couple of hours on a regular basis. Learn more.

In addition to supporting the Care Center, all 7 Willow Creek locations support local organizations.

The Wheaton Care Center

In 2010, the Willow Wheaton operation of the Willow Creek Care Center got its start as the Mobile Food Pantry, delivering groceries to families via neighborhood schools around West Chicago. Since we "grounded" the service on the Wheaton Academy campus in 2013, we have added programs for providing children's clothing, school supplies and Thanksgiving meal kits. Today, more than 100 volunteers serve at Willow Wheaton Care Center.
