Voluntary Action Center

Sending volunteers who rock to meet community needs

Our Story

VAC has been dispatching volunteers into the Lakes community of Iowa for 43 years. Our signature program is Meals on Wheels, and we also support the Kinship mentoring program, Re-New architectural salvage store, the community garden, Dickinson County Nature Center, Discovery House homeless shelter, the American Red Cross, and more.

Voluntary Action Center (VAC) sends volunteers into our community to serve the greatest needs of the community. Our signature project, Meals on Wheels, serves approximately 7,000 meals per year utilizing thousands of volunteers to not only deliver a nutritious midday meal, but also to chat with our recipients and do a safety check. We draw volunteers through the churches, schools, businesses, organizations, and attract individuals off the street as well as recruiting at special events.

To transform the Lakes community through the gifts of our greatest natural resource -- volunteers.
