This organization collects new and gently worn shoes to be shipped to adults and children all over the world, who do not have shoes and have had a natural diaster, such as the Tsunami. We will be cleaning shoes, sorting and boxing shoes.
We will have a guest speaker on our call, Tina Stasiuc, Major of the Des Plaines Salvation Army Community Center. Tina will be talking about the work she does for Salvation Army and talking about their Breakfast with Baby program. She will also be discussing how we can support the organization both during this time and after.
Members of the KC of Montego Central Kiwanis Club in Jamaica will also be joining us for an interclub! This is a newly charted club from Division 25 Cornwall. They were just charted in January.
Anyone and everyone is invited (and your friends too!) to collect donations at storefronts and intersections and hand out delicious Jelly Belly® beans. Your gift of just a few hours of volunteer time will raise money and "sweeten" the lives of the children and adults with developmental disabilities supported by Clearbrook.

Everyone is invited to join us for a do-it-yourself (DIY) garbage/litter pickup.
Take time to walk around your neighborhood or community and pick up trash, brush, and litter. This project can be completed with significant others or your children, too! The goal is to beautify our communities while practicing social distancing.
Please supply your own mask, gloves, garbage bags, etc.
Please complete the litter/trash pickup in your own neighborhood. Be sure to maintain social distancing. We ask that everyone wear a mask and gloves (as you are able).
Please complete this project anytime on May 16th. Please sign up below. Blaire will reach out to confirm hours after the event. Thanks!
If there is rain or inclement weather, we will reschedule.
Night OWLS (Night Out With Loving Sitters) is a non-sectarian ministry of First United Methodist Church in Arlington Heights, open to families throughout the northwest suburbs. Originally designed as a respite program for parents of special needs children, it has evolved into something more: still a delightful evening out for parents but also fun for all the children and our volunteers. There is quite a range of “disabilities,” though we are not able to accept medically fragile children.
On the third Saturday of the month (September through May, except not in December), special needs children and their siblings, ages 2-12, enjoy a pizza supper at 6:00 pm. After dinner, all children can visit different activity stations throughput the lower level of the church. Crafts, large motor equipment, movies, computer games, Lego building, board games, and more are included each evening. Each special needs child has his/her own adult “buddy” and all children are supervised by a youth or adult. Parents must pick up children by 9:00 pm.
We are not a large program, we advertise by word-of-mouth, and we try to accept all interested families each month.
