SLC (Service Learning Committee) – The Service Learning Committee would like to make a difference in our own neck of the woods by partnering with Sharing Connections, an organization right here in Downers Grove.

  •  NEW EVENT: STOCKING STUFFING PARTY at Sharing Connections. These stocking are given to children living at or below poverty level in our community. We have some donations left over from the shoebox event and plan to use them in the stockings, but we do need more donations to make the stockings spectacular. Here are the details, we hope you can join us.  SPACE IS LIMITED so sign up today!
    • Wednesday, December 5th from 6:00-7:30pm
    • Sharing Connections: 5111 Chase Avenue Downers Grove
    • Reserve your spot and sign up for donations at
    • PLEASE NOTE THERE IS A SEPARATE SPOT TO SIGN UP TO ATTEND THE STOCKING STUFFING PARTY AT SHARING CONNECTIONS.  Please consider donating items even if you cannot attend the party on Dec. 5th—THANK YOU!
    • Donations can be dropped off at school in the giant gift wrapped box outside the office by Wednesday Dec, 5th.  

If your plans change and you are no longer able to make the event after signing up, please contact Kate Urban at to cancel as space is limited and there will be a waitlist in effect. If you have any questions, please contact Kate Urban at or (810) 824-7110.
