I believe YOU have supported the Chamber and made us better by allowing us to help you maintain business continuity and sustainability through the pandemic. You continue to support the Chamber and for that we are very grateful; Thank You! We will continue to be here for you!

You are always on top of things and make sure our members receive the very best service! We are all very lucky to have you leading our organization! Thank You!

Lastly, I’d like to say thank you to the Executive Board for your commitment and dedication to ensure we maintain sustainability thru the pandemic. Your participation, insight and input led us thru these tough times. Thank You!

As we look ahead to 2021, I am excited to turn over the reins to Chris Buehler and confident he will lead us into a strong new year! Mr. Buehler is an exceptional leader and is the right person to jump start 2021!

Midwest Auto Body of Lisle is giving back to the community. Customers who spend more than $500 on auto body repairs, will receive a $25 gift card to a local small business. This program is a way to help support businesses that have been impacted by COVID-19 while also raising awareness among their customers about small businesses in the area. Midwest Auto Body has now purchased $2,000 in gift card investments in Lisle businesses.

Midwest also supports students through their “Dents and Dings for Education” program which donates all proceeds for minor repairs of $100 or less to the Lisle Education Foundation, which supports local students through scholarships. Dents and dings really add up, to date Midwest has donated a little over $2,000 to the fund.

According to Amish Patel, General Manager of Midwest Auto Body of Lisle, “My family has always believed that we rise by lifting others. We are proud to showcase other local small businesses during the pandemic and equally as proud to support Lisle area students through the Education Foundation. We are all in this together.” Amish Patel additionally gives back to his community by being a member of the Lisle Rotary Club.
