Christopher House is a family of schools that helps over 4,1000 children and their families in Chicago succeed in school, the workplace, and in life. This year has been a tough year on our families and we need your help now, more than ever.

Each December, community members and friends of Christopher House provide families with gift cards and pantry staples to make the season special for our communities. When you sign up to get involved, we will match you with a Christopher House family and share their wish list so that you can purchase the items they’d most appreciate.

Please go to https://www.christopherhouse.org/family-to-family/family2family/ to learn more about this amazing program and how you can ensure that our community has a joyful holiday season!
