10,000 Gifts Collected for Lake County Gift Program, 2,000 More Needed To Reach Goal
Friday, November 03, 2017 by Communications

With the generous support of local families, parishes, schools, and businesses, Catholic Charities Celebration of Giving gift-giving program brings joy and hope to families in Lake County who might otherwise not be able to celebrate the holiday season.

A beloved tradition in the Lake County area, the gift-giving program has already collected 10,000 gifts, just 2,000 short of what is needed to ensure all Lake County children and seniors in need have a happy holiday season. These remaining gifts can be collected by individuals, businesses, organizations, or parishes. To sign up to donate gifts, those interested can fill out our Donor Information Response Form at under the Lake County tab.

The program is also in need of a donated warehouse space of approximately 50,000 square feet in the Waukegan area. Catholic Charities will pay the utilities cost and insurance and will assume liability. The distribution phase runs from November 15 through December 31. For more information on donating a warehouse space, contact Jim Wogan at or (847) 782-4210.

This Christmas, thousands of people are counting on Catholic Charities to help make Christmas wishes come true. Every year, children and their families are blessed by the generosity of those who provide gifts and necessities during the holiday season.
