Lisle High School
The Turkey Trot Tune-Up 5k is an annual race hosted by the Lisle Area Chamber of Commerce; it is a fundraising event for them. We will be volunteering by directing the runners throughout the path and cheering them on. We will meet at the Lisle High School in the commons and then we will leave for our spots throughout the trail. This event is similar to Scarecrow Scramble. When the race ends there are medals for the top finishers in each age category for the runners.
Please dress warmly as we will be outside!
To RSVP or if you have any questions please email Gianna at firstname.lastname@example.org
Lights of Lisle
Saturday, December 3rd, 2pm to 6pm
Lisle Fire Station Garage
Lights of Lisle is an event where we help by lighting luminaries set up by other organizations that stretch along the Depot Museum and downtown Lisle. We will meet at the Lisle fire station near town hall then split into groups as we light the candles. It will be cold so dress warm and feel free to spread some holiday cheer by wearing something like a Santa hat!
To RSVP or have any questions please email Audrey at email@example.com

Letter Writing/ Card 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!
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.
Many senior citizens have become isolated due to the health crisis. 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.
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.
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!
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!
Other ongoing projects
Hello Lisle Teens! We have a special continuing service event that makes use of old jeans and other denim. If you'd like to donate, please bring any of these items to any LTWC events or drop them off at the park district. Thank you!
