CARES officials say Voiland used her experience and expertise to make vital connections throughout the community.

After retiring, Voiland began donating her time as a volunteer at CARES, where she continues to help the organization grow and expand its reach.

Voiland will join nine previous award winners on a plaque displayed in the CARES office.

The Volunteer of the Year Award was launched in 2005 to celebrate the work of those who give their time and commitment to the group.

"In September, Naperville CARES will be celebrating its 15th anniversary of service to the community, so there is no better way to kick off that celebration than by honoring a dedicated volunteer like Mary Voiland who has been involved with the organization since the beginning," Executive Director Janet Derrick said.

Since its founding, the group has provided $1.5 million in emergency financial support for residents in need.

In addition, the group has supplied more than 550 donated vehicles to eligible households.
