Chicago Terps give back this holiday season
Collecting funds through Dec. 8, 2018:
Brighten the holidays for Southwest Side families!
Our partner charity, Metropolitan Family Services Midway Center, works largely with low-income and working families who will struggle this holiday season purchasing gifts for their children. We are looking for donations to buy 24 children gifts this holiday season. All of the children range from infants to age 3.
Buy a child a gift, or buy a gift card
Make the holiday season a special time for Metropolitan’s families who cannot afford to purchase gifts. Donate gift cards or buy a gift for a specific child. We recommend spending $25 per child. Email Chicago Terps network leader Marie LaMonica '12 at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for gift drop-off.
Donate to our group effort!
Any amount is appreciated. To support all 24 families, Chicago Terps is looking to raise $600. You can Venmo your donation to @ChicagoTerps or make checks payable to Chicago Terps Alumni Network. All donations to Metropolitan are tax-deductible, and receipts can be provided.
Have questions? Email Marie LaMonica '12 at email@example.com.
