PHYLLIS SANTULLANO HOLIDAY GIFT DRIVE
Sponsors are sought for Moraine Township's annual event to provide gifts for children whose families are struggling during the holiday season. The Township partners with the community and schools on this effort, and was able to provide gifts for over 400 children last year. We hope to significantly increase that number for the upcoming holiday season.
The age, gender, size and a wish list from the anonymous child is provided to sponsors, who commit to spending $40-$50 on new toys and clothing for each child. Gifts are then distributed by the Township to the children and their families. Families also receive grocery gift cards for Sunset Foods or Jewel to shop for the foods that make their family's holiday celebration special.
Community Volunteer Sue Kach and Township Clerk Gail Feiger Brown will once again lead this effort. Download the Sponsor Form (pdf) or pick one up at the Township office, 777 Central Avenue; you can also email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Township Clerk 847-432-3240 to request a form.
