Giving back is a cornerstone of District 88 pride

Our students and staff continue to demonstrate that giving back is a cornerstone of District 88 pride. It’s our goal to provide a comprehensive educational experience for students, with a focus on the “whole child.”

We strive to develop within students an understanding of the importance of accepting and helping others, and we volunteer, host and participate in events such as:

  • Blood drives

  • Serving meals at the DuPagePads homeless shelter at First Presbyterian Church of Itasca

  • Raising money for breast cancer awareness and research throughout October

  • Relay For Life of District 88 Youth and Willowbrook’s Brook Olympics to raise money for the American Cancer Society

  • Kiwanis Peanut Days

  • Salvation Army bell ringing

  • Park Pride Cleanup Day and Salt Creek Cleanup Day

  • Toys for Tots at Addison Trail and the Warrior Project at Willowbrook, which collect gifts for local families and children for the holidays

  • Food drives to benefit local food pantries

  • Winter apparel drives

  • Shoveling snow for community members in need

  • Collecting formal wear and accessories, as well as school spirit wear, to ensure all students have access to these items

  • Blazer Relief Center at Addison Trail (a collection of food, hygiene items and clothing for students and their families)

  • Veterans Day Luncheon at Addison Trail and Addison Trail Veteran Service Organization (ATVSO) events

  • Community Nights to celebrate the start of each school year
