Christmas Toy Drives
School: Kevin Dowling Toy Drive
This Toy Drive benefits many special children with the Courage Program, Little Company of Mary Hospital, La Rabida Hospital, Loyola Hospital’s Ronald McDonald Child Life Program and Burn Center. This year’s Toy Drive will also benefit Advocate Children’s Hospital in honor of Baby Beau Dowling.
Please send in the toys/donations unwrapped to your child’s homeroom from now through Friday, December 9th. The grade that brings in the most toys/donations to school will win a pizza party.
Parish Toy Drive
The Toy Drive is sponsored by our St. Vincent de Paul Society. We will be helping to support Catholic Charities’ Annual Celebration of a Giving Toy Shower. Last year, the shower helped some of the neediest children in the care of Catholic Charities unwrap the Spirit of the Season.
Toys can be brought to church and placed under the Giving Tree or dropped off at the rectory. Toys should be NEW, in their ORIGINAL PACKAGES, and UNWRAPPED. Catholic Charities’ volunteers will wrap the toys and distribute to the neediest of children throughout the Archdiocese.
Catholic Charities will pick up all donated toys on Monday, December 12th.
