Elder Holiday Gift Program

We will give over 1,000 elders gifts this holiday season!

Our elders have provided their wish list for the upcoming holiday season and planning is underway to fulfill each wish. Oftentimes, this is the only holiday gift an elder will get.

Receiving a gift, and not just any gift, but an item that's wanted or needed, serves as a powerful reminder to our elders that they are not alone, especially during a season usually spent with family and friends.

But we couldn’t do it without your help! If you or a group of coworkers or friends would like to participate, simply complete our online form or contact our Holiday Gift Program Coordinators, Margaret Stansbury, or Christine Bertrand, by email or by calling 312-455-1000. They will contact you with your elders’ gift wishes.

Please drop off all gifts, unwrapped and in a gift bag, at Little Brothers beginning Friday, October 12th. They will be wrapped and delivered by volunteers to elders all over the city.

If you're unable to shop, you can still bring joy to an elder this holiday season! 

  1. Donate to purchase special gifts for elders.
  2. Become a volunteer and deliver gifts and holiday cheer to elders.
