Illinois Administrative Professional – Holiday Family Program

Our Illinois Administrative Professional ‘s organization has the opportunity to assist a family in need this Holiday Season.  Our family comes to us through Faculty Staff Assistance Services at the University of Illinois.  Our family includes a mother (recently widowed) with two small children, a boy age 9 and a girl age 5.  We would like to provide them a joyous holiday by providing clothing, toys, and essential needs. We would also like to provide the mother with a few gifts as well. 

In order to do this in a safe socially distance way please visit the Walmart registry here.  Items on the registry have been selected based on the family needs and the children’s “wish list”.  The registry is set up so that the items will be mailed to a Philanthropy committee members home.  We will take it from there.   Please let me know if you run into any problems.  If you would like to purchase a gift card, please feel free to do that as well.

We thank you for your continued generosity!!

The Philanthropy Committee,
Jane, Deb & Jill
