Welcome to our Santa Program


Thanks to the generous nature of our network of family, friends, co-workers, and their friends as we celebrate our 20th year of the Santa Program.

Our goal is to help families that have come on hard times due to our economy and not their lack of trying to make a living wage. In our efforts to help as many as possible we teamed up with Cornerstone Community Outreach because they offer shelter and services to homeless and low-income families and individuals through a variety of programs on the North-side of Chicago. An area we feel that is desperately underserved.

We hope we can count on your support to help spread the word so we can continue to help as many children and families as possible to have another very merry holiday.

Whether it's your first year getting involved, or you're part of our growing family of supporters. Every supporter of our program helps make one more child or family happy over the holidays.

COVID has forced us to adjust our Santa Program to accomodate all the new regulations. This year we're asking for gift cards or cash donations only. Sorry, they aren't allowed to accept gifts and have a wrapping party. Instead the social workers will take children shopping to pick out their own gifts or buy the gifts for the smaller children.
