The U. S. Marine Corps Reserve annually sponsors Toys For Tots and collects new, unwrapped toys during the holiday season to distribute as Christmas gifts to less fortunate neighborhood children. The primary goal of Toys For Tots is, through a shiny new toy at Christmas, to deliver a message of hope to needy youngsters that will motivate them to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens and community leaders.
Because it’s the giving season, we’re also hosting a food drive at each building to support The Greater Chicago Food Depository. The depository is a not-for-profit food distribution center that provides food to more than 142,000 people each week through a network of 650 soup kitchens, food pantries and shelters. Donations of canned goods and other non-perishable food items will help to ensure that families in need will not go hungry this holiday season.
Please join us in donating to one or both of these great organizations by dropping off your donation(s) in the designated boxes at any of the following Chicago locations:
1) Saint Luke Renaissance – Greenview Place, 1501 W. Melrose
2) Renaissance Saint Luke, 1501 W. Belmont Avenue
3) Wicker Park Renaissance, 1527 N. Wicker Park Avenue
4) The Renaissance Companies, 2001 W. Churchill Street
5) Lyndale Place, 2575 W. Lyndale Street
6) Renaissance West, 2517 W. Fullerton Avenue
7) Renaissance North, 551 W. North Avenue
Won’t you please join us in giving back this holiday season? Your donations will all be put to good use and will positively touch the lives of many families and children. THANK YOU!
