Families enjoy an afternoon of crafts, games and lunch, and caregivers have the opportunity to “shop” (free of charge) for gifts for their children.   Sign-up now before volunteer spots fill up!


All volunteers must be 18 or older. Volunteers on Saturday, December 16th must pass a criminal and DCFS background check. See below for ways to get involved.
