Virtual Service Projects
LTWC will be posting several ideas for service projects that you can do at home during these trying times. We'll be promoting different ideas that you can do with supplies from home and that don't involve purchasing new materials. We'd like to encourage you all to keep up on community service while at home. While you do, please document your service hours and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can track them effectively for the 2020-2021 year. We'd also greatly appreciate if you took photos and videos of your service efforts and send them to us as well. Thank you so much and stay safe all.
If you have nothing to do while stuck at home, paint some rocks! You can place them all around your neighborhood to brighten people's days. If you know little kids who live near you, let them know how many you have put out and make it a scavenger hunt!
*Only do this project if you have the needed materials in your house. DO NOT go out to buy supplies. You can also draw on rocks with sharpie! :)
Videos to Healthcare Workers!
Hey Teens, we will be sending a video of appreciation to healthcare workers. This video will be made up of smaller videos of you!
We are asking you to record two videos; one of you expressing appreciation to healthcare workers and the second of you just saying "Thank You!". Have parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, etc. record these videos as well. We need as many as we can get. Please send all of the videos to Doug at email@example.com.
Hello LTWC members. In the best interest of the community, LTWC will not be meeting until further notice. However, we'd like to encourage families to keep up volunteer efforts from home! If you have any ideas of projects that members can do from home, please let us know!

Kids Care to Help
Kids Care to Help is a group of high school students who help retirement center residents use their iPhones, tablets, and computers to connect with family/friends and to pursue their interests. The group travels to retirement communities within the western suburbs and spends one-on-one time with residents in their social halls or other comfortable common areas. Frequent topics of interest include Facebook, FaceTime, email, and photos as well as questions regarding basic device functions. This is a relaxing and fun experience enjoyed by both the students and the incredibly grateful residents. During the school year, Kids Care to Help will visit Villa St. Benedict on Thursdays and Sunrise of Naperville North on Friday for 1 hour after school.
