We put a call out for people to nominate the most remarkable woman they know. The kind of person that inspires, motivates and lifts hearts and a difference-maker.  After poring through hundreds of nomination letters, WGN News choose four finalists.

Lisa Fisher of Antioch is the first finalist.

Fisher created what she calls “The Antioch Traveling Closet.”

It is full of shoes, clothing, supplies and toiletries.

The organization holds four giveaways each year and temporarily turns the Antioch Senior Center into a school supply shop, a clothing store, drugstore and hair salon.

People come from Lake, McHenry, Kane, DeKalb and DuPage counties.

Fisher set out to help her hometown but ended up reaching far more than she could have ever imagined.
