While many seniors enjoy being able to live independently, the holidays can be a difficult time for those who are unable to spend them with friends or loved ones.
This is why the local Meals on Wheels Programs serving Leyden, Proviso, Lyons, Berwyn, Cicero, Worth, Calumet, Lemont, and Bloom Townships along with Kendall and Grundy Counties is inviting the community to come together to bring some comfort and holiday cheer to area seniors through its Holiday Gift Drive program.
Providing gifts and companionship at a time when seniors may need it most, the program is made possible through the generous support of local businesses, numerous volunteers and the donors of the Meals on Wheels Foundation of Northern Illinois.
Donations can be dropped off in person at one of our many convenient drop-off locations. There’s no need to worry about wrapping the gift, community volunteers and program partners will wrap and deliver the gifts to local seniors in time for the holidays.
Don't have time to shop but want to contribute?
Please consider making a donation to the gift drive.
