Shop: Fall brings sweater weather and seasonal home décor opportunities, and Twice is Nice can help you with that. Plus, a sneak preview of some Christmas items will be on the sales floor Monday, October 4, and an amazing full variety of all things Christmas is ready for purchase Monday, October 11 at 10 am! We’re easy-to-find and open Mondays-Saturdays from 10-4 PM: just a minute or so east on the Hwy 18 exit off the 26 bypass at 907 W. Racine St., next to the Jefferson Piggly Wiggly.
Volunteer: Toward this goal, the weekend of October 9-10 is Christmas changeover. We hope to see old and new faces who will help us get a higher than ever amount of Christmas inventory on the floor—LLHS parents and teens, grandparents, friends, groups from Federated congregations—you’re all needed! Beginning 4 pm on Saturday, Oct. 9, the shelves get stripped of merchandise and washed, several hours of work for many hands. Then starting at 8 am on Sunday, Oct. 10, we begin to merchandise Christmas items—an all-day, come-when-you-can for as long as you can. Lunch will be provided Sunday. Enter via the back-donation doors either day. Call the store at 920-674-6868 during open hours or email email@example.com to let managers know you plan to help. THANK YOU!
Summer 2021 marked yet another milestone for TiN & Lakeside Lutheran High School—our 100% volunteer store has gifted OVER $6 MILLION to this teen ministry, including general operating, wish list and special projects, since our store began in 1993. With enrollment at 457 this fall, Twice is Nice support just in the past year is the equivalent of $1,000 toward the cost to educate for each & every student.
Volunteer: Find out how easy and fun it is to help! We are eager to host you in a “no-pressure” visit to explore the store, meet some volunteers and learn about opportunities for you to have fun and feel productive making a vital difference for Lakeside Lutheran.

Our 100%-volunteer store crew reports that Saturday help at the back door receiving and sorting donations is scarce for summer weeks. They ask for family duos, friend partnerships or individuals to use the sign-up or scan the QR code to volunteer for one or more 3-hour Saturday shifts (10–1 or 1–4 pm) through September. Please consider this vital, active role that benefits not only Lakeside students but all the surrounding communities with amazing bargains and a great place to shop.
