Central School Gift of Giving-Gift Card Drive 2021
Hello Central School community,
Over the last 13 years, Central School Gift of Giving has partnered with two Chicago-based organizations during the holidays — LYDIA Home Association and Metropolitan Family Services (MFS). Last year Central School delivered an estimated $7,000 worth of gift cards, clothes, & toiletries to both LYDIA and MFS.

We’re excited to continue to make a direct impact with the 41 children who currently live in LYDIA Home, as well as the 35 women & families in the MFS domestic violence program, & 50+ other children and families in need directly through MFS.
Both LYDIA Home and MFS have requested gift cards this year for the children and families they serve. LYDIA Home has also reached out for new hats and gloves for each child.
For LYDIA Home, we are hoping to collect Target & Amazon gift cards to provide each child currently living in residence with $100 as well as new hats and gloves for each child. Gift card donations contribute to their clothing needs throughout the year, birthday gifts and presents for this holiday season.
***This year we are collecting donations in two ways – whichever is most convenient for you.***
1. To have the committee purchase your gift card(s), and/or new hats & gloves for each child, please sign up and venmo Rebecca Johnson: @Rebecca-Johnson-240. Please specify MFS or LYDIA and # of cards, hat/gloves in the notes section of your Venmo. Please add your name if not obvious from your Venmo handle.
2. If you choose to purchase the gift card(s) yourself, please drop all donations off directly to Maegan O’Neal’s home at 1215 Greenwood Ave. in Wilmette by FRIDAY, DECEMBER 3rd.
***The collection DEADLINE for ALL DONATIONS this year is FRIDAY, DECEMBER 3rd.***
Thank you for your consideration and support this holiday season!
