Holiday Wishes

Providing children in our programs with gifts during the holidays

Help make our Holiday Wishes a Success!

Partner with VOA Illinois this holiday season.

Each year we at VOA Illinois host Holiday Wishes. Holiday wishes is our holiday drive that provides holiday gifts to the Veteran families we serve, the youth in our foster care program, and the families in our Rapid Rehousing program. We are blessed every year to have generous individuals and companies that donate gifts to the children. Each child selects up to three wishes (each up to $25) and we ask our partners to fulfill these wishes. Each year we provide gifts, toys, and JOY to more than 350 children.

In addition to collecting presents for the youth we serve; we are looking for partners interested in donating items to the Veterans we serve. We are always looking for hats, gloves, scarves, warm socks, hand warmers, gift cards for a holiday meal, hygiene items, pantry staples, etc. Please let us know if you would be interested in this!
