Community Involvement

Dresden aims to be a good neighbor and is active in its surrounding communities.

  • Sponsorship: Dresden sponsors many community events, including the Grundy County Chamber of Commerce Family Fest, a day of family fun combined with a small business expo to unite area families with options around them.
    • Education: Dresden awarded $1,000 scholarships for graduating seniors at Morris and Minooka High Schools.
    • Community Development: Dresden supports the Goose Lake Prairie Partners environmental and educational efforts monetarily and physically as our neighbors.
    • Health and Human Services: Dresden financially supports the Coal City backpack program, a not for profit that sends food home in the backpacks of qualifying children who might otherwise not have food until returning to school. Employee fundraisers for this organization include a bowling for blessings in a backpack event.
  • Employee Giving & Volunteerism: Dresden employees give generously to the community through a variety of volunteer activities, including the local United Way campaign. The center also sponsors blood drives during the year, helping local hospitals.
