About Family First Center of Lake County

Location:

2408 29th Street, Zion, IL 60099, US

Mission Statement

On December 14th we need your help to give each child a Christmas. We hope for 200 volunteers to assist in toy giveaway to 9,000 children. 21,000+ Toys/Gifts will be at our site and distributed. To do this in 12 hours we really need your help.

Description

Our organization exists as a direct link between the U.S. Marine Corp Toys for Tots Program and the community members we live with and serve. We have been the single largest distribution site in Lake County for the past 10 years. Each year we increase and exceed our registered participants for Christmas gifts. Last year we serviced over 9,000 children in one day in our North Chicago distribution site. The total for the entire region served was 18,690 children.

This massive undertaking of distributing over 25,000 toys takes a lot of volunteers and we need your help this season. We believe that helping the less fortunate children throughout Lake County experience the joy of Christmas will unite all members of our community in a common cause for three months each year during the annual registration and distribution process.

In addition to being the Toys for Tots Distribution partner, to date, since our inception, we have serviced over 5000 clients providing them with support services such as tutoring, I.S.A.T training, back to school rallies, Smarties consisting of critical thinking, arts, and crafts, drama, math and reading skills. These enrichment activities will help to prepare individuals to be able to compete in society.
