Wheaton’s Community Relations Commission is responsible for promoting community involvement and volunteering.
Good Citizen Awards
The annual Good Citizen Awards help recognize those who make the generous and often extraordinary contributions that make Wheaton an outstanding community. This may be volunteer service for a school, church, nursing home, civic group or nonprofit organization.
Make a Difference Day
Wheaton celebrates Make a Difference Day on the fourth Saturday of each October. The Community Relations Commission leads Wheaton’s Make A Difference Day efforts, where residents, schools and community organizations undertake projects that benefit others.
