We need help preparing for the Depot Days parade.


Big thanks to everyone that donates: to the people who drop off items and never leave their names. Our community is what makes Teen Turf work. It is the whole community that has made Teen Turf stay alive and able to help so many.

The recycle program of cans helps maintain our van and also helps our environment.


There is an account set up at First Federal Savings and Loan, First National Bank of Amboy, and Pioneer State Bank (former Farmers State Bank of Sublette) if you would like to donate to our programs.  All donations are tax deductible as we are a 501c3. Teen Turf has been in existence for over 20 years.  Since we do not receive any state or federal money we survive on the generosity of the community.  United Way has been a huge supporter for 15 years.  If you are able to help us out please send your donations to Teen Turf, P. O. Box 321, Amboy, IL 61310.


Yes, we are still recycling cans. Just put your bags behind the fence on the red trailer. The white wire rack is for plastic and paper recycle items. Be sure that all the materials are tied and secured in bags or boxes. High-fives to everyone that donates cans and to Pete Rood for elevating them almost daily. It helps our environment and our van upkeep. If you have cans that need to be picked up just call 857-4800.


Please call 857-4800 if you are missing anything. Any of the coats, hats, and gloves will be donated next month.


Our board members are Deb Albee, Kim Watley, Cindy Phillips, Scott & Janine Huffman, Kaylee Jones, and Mark Grossman.

(PLEASE DO NOT DROP OFF TVs. We cannot recycle them.)
