Why not support our families by giving whatever you can

The Grinch may have stolen Christmas from Whoville, but not Humboldt Park. 

No child should be disappointed on the holidays, and with your help we can bring smiles to the faces of hundreds of little ones this year.

On December 19th, Reason to Give will host our 7th Annual Holiday Potluck for all of our families.

We need $5000 to help 250 children

Hundreds of parents and kids will join us to shop our free stores, have their family portraits taken, and feast on home cooked potluck. An event that started small, has become our biggest and best of the year.

We promise everyone a warm coat and every child a toy that they were begging Santa to bring. Our families will also leave with plenty of clothes and household goods to get them through another Chicago winter. 

Reason to Give will accept donations of new toys and new or gently used coats and winter gear.  Please contact shannon@reasontogive.com to arrange a drop off. 


Want to be more involved?

We have so many ways for you to give back this holiday season:

Host A Drive: You can host a coat or toy drive at your place of business, as an alternative to gifts of wine at a holiday party, or just among friends. 

Adopt A Family: We'll provide you with a wish list from a child or family. You buy and wrap some of the items on the list. Then you can even join us on the delivery

Volunteer at our Annual Holiday Potluck: Come help us pass out toys and coats on Saturday December 19th. (We could also use help with set up the evening before). Please click here to sign up.
