Kids’ Holiday Party

ChicagoCAC Kids' Holiday Party Volunteers

Each December, ChicagoCAC hosts a Kids’ Holiday Party for more than 300 clients, their siblings and caregivers. Families enjoy an afternoon of crafts, games and lunch, and caregivers have the opportunity to “shop” (free of charge) for gifts for their children. 

Host a gift drive

This party is possible through generous support of individuals and organizations who collect thousands of new toys, games and other gifts for children. We provide flyers and can arrange to pick up donations at the end of the drive.  

For information on hosting a toy drive at your office, school or community organization, contact Camille Richardson: (312) 492-3850 or


Our Kids’ Holiday Party is our largest volunteer opportunity of the year; we need more than 100 volunteers to run this event smoothly!

Our volunteer events for 2016 are now full. Thank you to all of our generous supporters!
Please support this year’s extra large party by contributing a gift from our Amazon Wish List! 

Send a gift

We make it easy to send gifts to a family in need! View our Amazon Wish List to pick out a gift and send it directly to the center. Your donation can go even further when you shop using Amazon Smile with ChicagoCAC as your charity of choice!

Please note: Amazon does not share shoppers’ names or contact information with ChicagoCAC. Please forward your order confirmation to Elissa Mann ( so that we may thank you appropriately! 

Help cover our costs

This party is free of charge to our clients and their families, but Santa doesn’t cover all of our costs! For just $25, you can help two children attend the party and enjoy a care-free afternoon. Make a monetary donation to our Kids’ Holiday Party now.
