Are you hosting a gift drive at your school, office or church? Here are some "Best Practices" to help make you drive a success!

· Designate an individual or team to lead your group’s collection efforts.

· Advertise a collection location/box and deadline.

· Encourage participation by setting a team goal or make the collection into a competition between departments.

· Share the Gift Drive flyer and Amazon wish list link with participants:

· Coordinate a holiday event and ask participants to write a holiday greeting/note of encouragement to the Club members.

· We recommend collecting items in November and early December so that items can be delivered to BGCC by Monday, December 12, 2016.

· Please coordinate delivery or drop-off of the items December 5 – 12th by contacting Andrea Chwee: or 312-235-8015. (Alternative dates can be coordinated, if needed.)

· Main Collection Location: James R. Jordan Club, 2102 W. Monroe, Chicago, IL 60612 (no weekend deliveries, please)


If it is more convenient for you, you may donate online, and we’ll use your donation wherever it is most needed at the holidays for our Boys & Girls Club kids.
