Filling Santa's Sleigh

2 years ago I started Filling Santa's Sleigh (a toy drive) by collecting toys to donate to sick kids in the hospital over the holidays. Thanks to all the places in the Joliet and surrounding communities we were able to fill a trailer full of toys and dropped them off at the children's hospital in Oak Lawn. Last year we didn't fill Santa's sleigh due to a family situation but this year with corona effecting so many families I want to do a toy, food, coat/clothes, essential drive with a cash fund to help families with in our community. This go fund me is for anyone who would like to donate cash to help a great cause. All cash donations will go towards helping families with in the Joliet and surrounding communities who are out of work on a fixed income and struggling with bills or any necessary house hold items . There is also a Facebook page if you would like more information on other ways to donate or help .  All cash and donated items will be distributed to families in need December 18th through December 21st.  here  is the link to the Facebook event page .
