Make the Holiday Season Brighter for Children & Families
Each year with your support, Children’s Home & Aid is able to provide gifts and essential home goods to more than 4,500 children and their families. Amidst the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, kids and families are in need now more than ever. While our Holiday Campaign looks a little different this year, we’re trying to make the largest impact possible despite the limitations of the pandemic. We need to raise $225,000 in support for more than 4,500 children, youth, and their families through gift cards and cash donations. There is still time to participate! While we are no longer accepting gift cards, your cash gift will help families have a brighter holiday season and a good start to the new year.
UPDATE 12/4/20: Due to the urgent need of our families, Children’s Home & Aid is prioritizing cash donations for families to ensure we can pre-purchase gift cards, later supported by your donation through January. We’re grateful for your support!
Here’s how you can help:
- Make a donation to our Holiday Campaign fund (and double your impact through your employer’s matching gift program)
- Your $50 gift will support a parent to purchase gifts for their child.
- Your $250 gift will support a family to buy gifts and home essential needs.
- Your $500 gift will support 2 families to have the best holiday season possible.
- Host a virtual giving campaign by encouraging your team or network to make a cash donation.

- Help us stock our Parent Pantries at our Chicago-area early childhood centers
- Families are in great need of everyday necessities like diapers, cleaning supplies, and hygiene product that you and I may take for granted
- Your donation will support our Centers located in Schaumburg, Palatine, Carpentersville and Chicago’s Englewood community
