Helping America's Most Vulnerable

Holiday Wishes

Providing children in our programs with gifts during the holidays


Each year we, at Volunteers of America of Illinois, host Holiday Wishes, a program that provides gifts during the holidays to the children  that we serve in our foster care program and to the children of the Veterans we serve. We are blessed every year to have generous individuals and companies that donate gifts to the children. Each year we provide gifts, toys, and JOY to more than 300 children.

Volunteers of America of Illinois (VOA of IL) invites you to participate in Annual Holiday Wishes! Holiday Wishes is a drive that VOA of IL hosts to provide the children that we serve in our child welfare services, the children of the Veterans that we serve with gifts for the upcoming holiday season.    

Every year, our sponsors help in providing the children with something to unwrap and open during the holiday season. With your help we can achieve this year’s goal to serve over 300 children!  We will distribute all the presents to the children. 

For more than 100 years, VOA of IL has met the critical needs of children and families in Illinois through a variety of services designed to strengthen families, promote safety and well-being in children and empower individuals to transform their lives. Each year, we bring real solutions and create positive and lasting change for over 1,000 people in crisis including Veterans at risk of homelessness or in serious instability, children in foster care and the frail elderly.

Help make our Holiday Wishes a success!
