UPCOMING EVENTS

West Suburban Community Pantry

Friday, May 7th 4pm-5pm

We are lucky to volunteer at West Suburban Community Pantry (WSCP) again this year! This year, due to COVID-19, we will be helping to stock shelves and make sure things run smoothly on the back end of the pantry. We do have a limited amount of spots so unfortunately for safety reasons this event is first come, first served. COVID precautions will be strictly enforced.

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

River Sweep

Lisle's Community Park

May 15th, 9am-12pm

At this event we will be working together to pick up the litter in the Lisle Park District. We will split up into small groups and walk around Community Park. We will use stakes to pick up trash in hard to reach places like out in the woods, or in the river or lake. Organizations around the county will be participating in this event in many places on the same day. The purpose of the one-day river sweep is to encourage volunteer groups to help “sweep our rivers clean” by picking up debris in and along the local waterways. 

Email Gianna cmch0531@gmail.com to RVSP or with any questions.

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! 

Spring Cleaning 

It's always a good time to clean up around the house. Spring cleaning isn't that far off! 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!
