Each year, Lisle hosts a Fourth of July Parade through downtown to celebrate and honor those who have served and sacrificed for our freedom.

We will be wearing our LTWC shirts and carrying our banners to show the six pillars of character in our community. Please RSVP so we know how many teens to expect! At 9:30am, we will meet at the Lisle Junior High (5207 Center Ave) for staging, and the parade itself will start at 10am.

Holiday Party

We hosted our annual LTWC holiday celebration where we met at the Lisle Senior Center to enjoy various activities, games, and snacks in order to spend time with peers and get in the holiday spirit! We had a great time chatting, making crafts, and playing games such as Family Feud.

Recap! - Lights of Lisle

For this event, we set up luminaries around downtown Lisle, helping to create a festive atmosphere for the parade and various holiday activities taking place. Altogether, this project was a great way to help locally while having a good time. We finished faster than ever this year, leaving time to enjoy the local holiday cheer.

Recap! - Sleep Out Saturday

For this event, we slept outside overnight in boxes or tents to raise awareness for homelessness in DuPage County. As part of the event, participants raised funds for Bridge Communities, an organization that works with local homeless families. We traveled together to a rally at College of DuPage where we will learned about what Bridge Communities does, heard actual stories from people that Bridge Communities has helped, and enjoyed soup and bread prepared by the COD Culinary Program.

Everyday Volunteering

Feel free to volunteer using the ideas below, or come up with your own! 

Letter Writing

There are many options for organizations/causes to write letters to. If you'd like to write a letter or make a card, please drop it off at the park district and we'll be sure to send it out for you. Whether it's one letter or a dozen, any would be greatly appreciated! Write inspirational quotes, tell them about your day, send them a story, etc. It's all up to you! 

Military

Write letters or make cards for our troops to thank them for their service. These brave people give up so much to keep us safe. Let's show them we appreciate their sacrifice. These letters and cards will be given to Chaplain Heroes to distribute to troops around the world. 

Senior Citizens 

Many senior citizens feel isolated due to health concerns. This is an incredibly lonely time for many, so let's cheer them up and let them know we are thinking of them. These cards and letters will be sent to a local extended care facility. 

Sole Hope

Write letters or make cards for people in Uganda receiving our Sole Hope donations! Many people in Uganda go without shoes and that leads to some painful health conditions. The recipients of our shoe patterns also love hearing from the people that send them! These letters and cards with be sent with our patterns donation to Uganda. 

Litter Pickup

Though the weather has gotten colder, it's still nice to get outside and get some fresh air. If you go on a walk and want to help the environment, bring a trash bag and a pair of gloves with you. Pick up any trash you find and throw it away in a garbage can when you're back. Any little bit helps! Be sure to recycle if you can and stay safe! 

Fall/Winter Cleaning

It's always a good time to clean up around the house. Spring cleaning doesn't have to stay in spring! Pick a small part of your house and sort through it. If you find articles of clothing, housewares, school supplies, or other items that you don't need but someone else could use, put it to the side. Ask your parents to donate the items to people in need. Helpful tip: Give the items to a organization like your local Food Bank, Homeless Shelter, or Animal Shelter. Many places are looking for specific items that will be very gracious for your donation!
