Five Ways to Volunteer in Area
There are people and organizations who need the help of willing volunteers in the Wheaton area. 

And Patch.com knows there are plenty of residents out there willing to lend a helping hand. 

With that in mind, Patch.com has looked to  volunteermatch.org., a website aimed at bringing "good people and causes together," for volunteer opportunities currently posted for the area. Here is a look at five of those opportunities: 
  1. The  DuPage County Health Department is looking for  readers to read to  clients' children during selected DuPage County Health Department clinic hours while they wait for their appointments. Here is a look at the hours when volunteers are needed: Wednesdays from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. at the Wheaton Public Health Center, 111 North County Farm Road and Thursdays from 12:30 p.m. until 2:30 p.m., at the Public Health Center in Lombard, 1111 East Jackson Street. Get more information here.

  4. The  18th Judicial Circuit Court in Wheaton is looking for volunteers for its court friends  group, which consists of visitors who drop in once a month to private homes to ask the ward and guardians a series of questions. Other volunteers check court records and update addresses and phone numbers of the wards and guardians.
