El Hogar Del Nino’s Granting Joy at Christmas 2010 is a massive success

El Hogar Del Nino’s Granting Joy at Christmas 2010 is a massive success

 Staff members and volunteers at El Hogar Del Nino/The Home of the Child have been more like Santa’s elves in the two weeks leading up to Christmas.  All hands were on deck to provide children in our early childhood education, after-school and family case management programs with a toy under the tree on Christmas.

 Santa stopped by on December 22 to hand each child their gift.  He also wished the children a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

 Our generous sponsors came through leaps and bounds above our goal of 400 toys. Close to 700 children will now receive a toy. 

The overwhelming success of our toy drive is due to the generosity of our incredible sponsors. We would like to thank Toys for Tots Foundation, Cabrera Capital Markets LLC, Lopez & Company Certified Public Accountants, Corvus Janitorial Systems, GT Mechanical Inc., Chicago Mini Bus Travel, Inc., Extra Newspaper, Erie Neighborhood House, Onward Neighborhood House, Pilsen Neighbors Community Council, Antonio Cerda, Kate and Chad Brandt, Leticia Ballesteros, Alice Kelly, Holly Hirst, Gretchen Miller, Peter Donoghue, and Simmons Middle School.  In addition we would like to thank Juan Pablo Mosqueda and the Hispanic Center of Excellence - Medicina Scholars as well as our other volunteers for their help wrapping the gifts.
