  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!

It's not too late banner.png

There's still time to give!

We've successfully gathered toy donations from schools, but the opportunity to contribute is still open! Collection boxes remain at Two Hound Red Brewing (486 Pennsylvania Ave, Glen Ellyn) and Glen Ellyn Pediatric Dentistry (45 S. Park Blvd. Suite #105 Glen Ellyn) until tomorrow afternoon.

 

EXTRA CHANCE TO GIVE: A collection box will be available outside Parkview Community Church (764 St Charles Rd, Glen Ellyn) TOMORROW, Dec. 14th, from 7 AM to 8 PM.

Swing by anytime tomorrow to drop off your unwrapped toys. Feel free to pop in to see our dedicated team of elves wrapping, organizing, and preparing for Delivery Day. Bring the kids! As it’s a magical day filled with Christmas spirit and community cheer.

Happy Holidays!

Please note: All recipient families are local, residing within the boundaries of our Glen Ellyn School Districts (D41 and D89 combined).

TOY DRIVE DETAILS

Our annual toy drive provides toys to all the children on our sponsored families list for the 2023 Holiday season - OVER 200 CHILDREN TOTAL!

SPREAD JOY THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!
YOUR KINDNESS & GENEROSITY

All the sponsored families are local and live within the boundaries of the Glen Ellyn School Districts (D41 and D89 combined)

Please donate a new, unwrapped toy for a child (male, female, or non-gender specific) between the ages of birth - 11 years of age

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.
