The 2016 holiday toy drive for the Irving Park Community Food Pantry is underway. Throughout the year, hundreds of children and their families rely on the pantry. Volunteers want to help bring happiness this holiday season. For some, it is the only gift they will receive.
The pantry is accepting unwrapped toys for boys and girls ages 0-12, stocking stuffers for all ages, and new hats, gloves, scarves, and socks in all sizes to distribute to pantry clients. Financial donations are also appreciated and will be used to purchase need items.
All toys and donations must be received at the pantry by December 14th to ensure delivery before Christmas. Additionally, there are toy collection boxes at the following locations:
