Among the items in demand besides “extra holiday fixings:” canned meats, vegetables and fruit; canned fish; peanut butter; jelly or jam; soups, canned or instant; pasta; rice; cereal, hot and cold; powdered milk; dry beans; baby formula; baby food or cereal; diapers and wipes. All donations are greatly needed and appreciated!
LCVB is Spreading the Warmth to Lisle Schools
Along with the Holiday Food Drive, the Lisle Convention & Visitors Bureau is taking part in their 2nd Winter Warmth Drive assisting children in our community. This year, the Lisle CVB is working with the Lisle School District 202 and are currently collecting new and or gently used children’s winter coats, hats, mitten/gloves, and scarves and distributing them to Lisle schools.
