Toy Shower

Catholic Charities' 70th annual Toy Shower invites children to experience the joy, magic, and spirit of Christmas by providing each child with gifts.

Ways you can help:

  • Sponsor a toy drive with your family, friends, coworkers, fellow parishioners, or other group. Collect new, unwrapped toys and donate them to the Celebration of Giving. If you collect more than 75 toys, we can even send a truck to pick them up!
  • Sponsor a holiday toy drive for children at a Catholic Charities child development center. Our centers range in size from 50-600 children. We’ll send you the names, genders, and ages of the children you are sponsoring. You also have the option to host a Christmas party with the children at the center – a great way to celebrate the holidays with your group!
  • Sponsor a shopping spree at Toys R Us with your company or group. We provide the wish list, and you provide the funds and the shoppers. 
  • Call the Celebration of Giving hotline at 312-655-7401, or email for more information.
