Looking Back On A Year of Doing Good

For the past year, WDCB’s Gary Zidek has worked with Giving DuPage to shine a spotlight on the various non-profits in the area and the opportunities they offer to people that want to give back to the community. Many of the organizations wouldn’t be able to accomplish their mission without volunteers. This week Gary looked back at the yearlong series of discussions…and looks forward to 2018
