Shop for a Child
Are you interested in helping children within local School District 303 this holiday season? Do you love to shop for gifts? If so, we’d love to hear from you.
We’re looking for individuals, families, businesses, groups or neighborhoods to help us with our 6th Annual Christmas Gift Sponsorship. Sponsors would need to purchase 3 or more items off of each child’s personalized wish list. It normally costs around $50.00 per child. You would bring those unwrapped gifts to us in St. Charles on or before November 30th.
It’s because of sponsors like you that we’re able to help so many children and make this event such a huge success. Last year we made sure 443 children woke up Christmas morning with gifts under their tree. This year, with your help, we will be assisting around 700 children. If you don’t have time to shop for gifts for these children, we hope you will consider making a monetary donation to help further our cause.
Will you join with us to help underprivileged children in D303 have a brighter Christmas?
