Sole Hope 

Lisle Senior Center 

Thursday, September 14th 7pm

Join us for Sole Hope on Thursday the 14th! From 7-8:30pm we'll be taking old jeans and turning them into new shoes for people in need! We'll trace patterns on donated denim and cut them out. Those cutouts will then be sent overseas to create jobs and shoes for people in Uganda. This event lets you go at your own pace, so join us for a fun mid-week stress reliver and earn service hours in the meantime! 

If you have any questions or would like to RSVP, please email Dawn at dyackley@lisleparkdistrict.org

September Large Group Recap

Last Monday was our September Large Group. We had a great time exercising our engineering skills with a water relay icebreaker, took a more in-depth look at our six pillars of character, and talked about which celebrities or characters we thought were examples of each of the pillars. If you didn't get a chance to join us, our October meeting is coming up soon! We also talked about many of our upcoming service projects. Many of them include T-Shirts and food while having fun and earning service hours! Details for each of these can be found on the Participant Agenda and will be posted here shortly.

Storm Drain Stickering

TBD - Date Will Be Posted Soon

Lisle Senior Center 

1925 Ohio St. Lisle IL 60532

We will be placing stickers on storm drains in a nearby neighborhood. Your help is imperative since storm drains must stay clean because otherwise the sewer systems can be backed up. Additionally, our drains are connected to local waterways. This event doesn't have a determined date quite yet but it will be announced soon. If you are interested in participating, please email Darci at darcianna5@gmail.com when the rest of the information is released.

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

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! 

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 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. 

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 Pick-Up 

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!
