Help make the holidays hope-filled for our youth and families by ensuring they have gifts to open this holiday season.
Choose one of the ways below to spread some holiday cheer, and please make sure your unwrapped gift(s) and/or monetary donation reaches us no later than Friday, December 9th.
Request a Wish List
Fulfill the holiday wishes of a Lawrence Hall youth! Each of our 600+ youth created a wish list of items equaling $50, and they are excited! Gift drop off is between the hours of 10am-4pm, Monday-Friday, at Lawrence Hall's Main Campus building at 4833 N. Francisco Avenue in Chicago. Please leave all gifts unwrapped.
Help make a child's dream come true this holiday season, and request a wish list(s) by emailing Maddy.
Host a Gift Drive
Get your church, office, or friend group involved by hosting a gift drive. Our youth need:
- Warm clothing, especially larger young adult sizes
- Teenage-friendly gifts, hygiene products, perfumes, and cologne
- Toys and baby clothes
- Arts and crafts items
To set up your own gift drive, email Laryssa.
Shop Our Amazon Wish List
Browse our Amazon Wish List, and send the gifts directly to Lawrence Hall. **Please include your wish list ID number in the comments box during checkout, so we can match the gift to the correct child's wish list.** Remember to purchase through AmazonSmile and make Lawrence Hall your organization of choice, as Amazon will donate a percentage of your purchase total to us. Find out more about AmazonSmile at smile.amazon.com.
Gift Card Drive
Our older youth love gift cards, as they get in the holiday spirit by shopping for themselves. Please purchase only physical gift cards —NO e-gift cards, please—and while you can donate as many gift cards as you wish, limit each card amount to $50 or less. All gift cards should be either physically mailed to our Main Campus location (ATTN: Laryssa Sykes) or dropped off at Main Campus. For any questions, please email Laryssa.
