2023 Annual Toy Drive
Working in conjunction with our annual Christmas Baskets Sponsor a Family Program
Glen Ellyn Junior Woman’s Club is once again preparing for our annual Christmas Baskets Sponsor a Family Program. Last year, the Christmas Baskets Program provided food, clothing, toiletries, toys, and gifts to 148 needy families and seniors – 602 people total - within the Glen Ellyn community.
The toys that you donate are distributed to all the children on our sponsored families list – over 200+ children total - for the 2023 Holiday season. All our sponsored families are local and live within the boundaries of our Glen Ellyn School Districts (D41 and D89 combined).
If you would like to participate in our toy drive, please scroll down for details.
Please help Glen Ellyn Juniors bring the magic of Christmas to local families in need.
BECAUSE WE BELIEVE THAT EVERY CHILD DESERVES A TOY ON CHRISTMAS!
There's still time to give!

WILL HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Books, crafts, Lego sets, gift cards, and other items suited for older children (9-11) are GREATLY needed and are GREATLY appreciated. The older age range tends to get the least amount of donations for boys and girls alike.
