Holiday Assistance Program

Help Local Families Through Holiday Assistance Program
Posted on 10/27/2018

This is an exciting year for the Holiday Assistance Program! This helps benefit families who are less fortunate. This year our goal is to assist 100 families. If you would like to be a sponsor and make a difference in the life of someone in your community, please call the Health and Human Services Department at 847.368.5791. 

There are 4 ways to donate:

  • Sponsor a family: Sponsors are asked to indicate how many individuals they  wish to sponsor.  Families provide individual wish lists.  Please label all gifts with family ID#, age, and gender. 

  • Monetary Contribution: 100% of all monetary donations will be used to help families with bills or to purchase gift certificates. Checks may be made payable to the Village of Arlington Heights-Holiday Program.
  • Gift cards: Donations of gift cards to grocery, clothing, gas, or other stores are a welcome addition to meet our families’ holiday wishes.

  • General donations: Donations of new, packaged items for any age or gender help provide gifts throughout the year to families in need. 

We request all donations be provided by December 10, 2018. Please call 847.368. 5791 to arrange a time to drop off gifts.
