Bringing Christmas Cheer to Families in Need

Who We Are

Santa’s Volunteers is a grassroots, non-profit organization that purchases and delivers food, knit goods and toys to thousands of our less-fortunate neighbors in the Chicago area at Christmas. We are unique in that every penny donated goes straight to the purchasing of these items. All administrative expenses are personally paid by our directors. We work with social service agencies and religious organizations to identify the families that are most in need.

Each family gets two big bags of groceries – turkey or ham, cranberry sauce, fruit, vegetables, dessert and more – plus a gift certificate. They get another bag full of new, warm things to wear or blankets, and if they have children, there will be toys, games, and stuffed animals to hand out.
