What We Do

Each year we work with our civic leaders, schools, business and community partners throughout Chicago to bring the spirit of the season to hard-working families, deserving students, and our youth. We dedicate 100% of our resources for a sole purpose, to serve. We accomplish this by selecting with our aldermen over 100 deserving families each year from the wards of Chicago who would otherwise go without not only toys-but essentials like food and clothing; by partnering with Congressman Rush each year to give over 50 laptops to college-bound freshman who have achieved academic excellence in their secondary education; by celebrating and rewarding outstanding achievement-as we did in 2016 with laptops to the entire Wendell Phillips Academy football team, Chicago’s first public school team to win the state football title.

"When we join hands, remembering the gifts that we have been granted throughout our lives, we can similarly be of service and ensure that the spirit of the holidays remains alive for all, no matter their circumstances. From a small Englewood gymnasium to a city-wide celebration of community, Christmas in the Wards is an annual testament of the power of generosity. Happy Holidays and may your new year bring you love and happiness."
