Ladybug Toy Drive

November 19, 2012 | Tweet this

We’re at it again!

Starting Friday, November 23rd we’re launching our 2nd Annual Toy Drive.
Through Friday, December 14th, we will be collecting new, unwrapped donations.

Soon you’ll be noticing these boxes around the city and suburbs of Chicago.

Last year, we collect over 1,200 items!

The quantity and quality of donations is important because Comer Children’s Hospital at the University of Chicago utilizes your offerings in their onsite, temporary pop-up toy store. Parents and caregivers are invited to shop (at no cost) for gifts for their child (the in-patient) and the child’s siblings – minimizing the stress of the holidays.

We are thrilled to announce our incredible corporate partners this year. A special thanks goes out to them for opening their doors to this important cause. We’d also like to thank the many private donors who are hosting their own personal events to collect toys. With all of this support, we are confident we’ll break last year’s toy collection record!

Donations will be warmly accepted at any of the following locations spread throughout the city and suburbs. Please note that some locations will also be hosting special events in honor of the toy drive. If you can make it out, we’d love to see you there!
