  • MLK Day of Service

    "Life's most urgent question is: What are you doing for others?" -Martin Luther King Jr. How will you participate in this day of service?

  • Roxy Baker-Volunteer of the Week - November 23, 2020

    Roxy Baker has been volunteering at Sophia's Kitchen in Peoria, IL since 2012 and enjoys cooking for the hundreds who come each day to eat. All of the food she has available to her is donated, so she never knows when she arrives what may be in store for her that day. 

  • Support the Serve Illinois Foundation

    Donations made to the Serve Illinois Foundation support the year round work of Illinois volunteers. Help us recruit, recognize and retain those serving communities throughout Illinois.
