Holiday Toy Drive and Event

Holiday Toy Drive and Event

Chicago, IL. We hope everyone had a happy, healthy, and safe holiday season. This year has been anything but easy, but we wanted to give a generous thank you to everyone who made our Holiday 2020 Event a success! We were able to give away over $20,000.00 in toys, as well as raffle off bikes and tablets to Native youth. While families were coming to pick up their gifts, there was also an opportunity to take a picture with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Entertainment from Santa and his elves was a fun addition. We were also able to provide over 120 food baskets to our families this year as well as a small meal to go. We hope that our efforts brought you all some joy during your holiday season.

 

We also want to give the utmost gratitude to everyone who contributed to make this year’s event such a memorable one! It wouldn’t have been possible without all of our volunteers and everyone who donated.
