2020 Annual Spirit Gift Wrapping Event – Covid Style


We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to our volunteers and donors for their steadfast support throughout our most recent holiday event. Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, we were unable to hold our Annual Spirit Gift Wrapping Event which is typically scheduled during the first week of December. However, the needs of local children did not disappear with the event, and we were incredibly fortunate to have so many who were involved with our past events, together with many of our social worker contacts, step up to ensure that we were still able to make Christmas a special occasion for the homeless and needy children in Kane County. Due to the amount of assistance we were given, our Christmas gifts for these children were delivered on time. As in past years, all presents were individually chosen, respecting the wishes and/or needs of each child, and then beautifully wrapped by our volunteers. There are no words adequate to express our gratitude to our generous volunteers, without whom our 2020 Annual Spirit Gift Wrapping event could not have been accomplished.

We are so grateful that our volunteers, their families and friends have remained well during these challenging times, and we are hopeful that the coming new year will find us all with the ability to get together once again.
