Each winter, with the support of numerous gift partners, HACC distributes winter clothing, educational toys and games, and personal care items to children and families in our programs. As a generous HACC supporter, you are invited to become a gift donor for the 2019 Howard Area Community Center Winter Gift Program.

This year we expect to distribute gift packages to nearly 1000 children and gift cards to over 400 families, including 155 children and 75 families in the Adult Education Program. Many of the families in the program are recent immigrants who may find themselves unprepared for the harsh Chicago winter. For these families, children’s gift packages that include winter clothing are especially needed.

We are helping our community make ends meet, and you can help!

You can pledge to provide the following items:

The Book Bag Pack, which includes: BackPack and School Supplies

The Winter Apparel Pack, which includes: Coat, Hat, Gloves, Scarf, and Socks

The Newborn Pack, which includes: Bulk Diapers and Wipes

You can also support local families with the purchase of gift cards, which can be used to purchase food or special needs items.
