On March 18th the Voluntary Action Center is throwing a fundraiser/party to celebrate five years of community and public transportation for Kendall County. The event will showcase KAT history, offer guests food, beverages, and music, as well as help the VAC raise funds to continue doing what KAT was designed for: Providing rides to the community’s most needy and transit dependent populations!

Your sponsorship of the “5 Years and Counting “fundraiser will support the Voluntary Action Center to provide community transportation through Kendall Area Transit, which is vital to seniors, individuals with disabilities, and other community members wishing to live a more independent life. Every $100 raised will help VAC provide six (6) rides to community members in need. All donations stay in the community to support local services and will help improve the quality of life in Kendall County.
