Thank you to everyone for supporting the 2022 Celebration of Giving at Catholic Charities. Look for information in fall 2023 on how you can help our work to bring joy to the lives of children and families in Cook and Lake counties.


With the support of local families, parishes, schools, and businesses, Celebration of Giving has been bringing joy and hope to children and families who might otherwise not be able to celebrate the holiday season for more than 71f years. Our Celebration of Giving, previously known as the Toy Shower, provides at least two toys to each child served by Catholic Charities. Last year, Catholic Charities was able to distribute gifts, toys and necessities to more than 25,000 children and families thanks to the generosity of people like you!

Ways you can help:

  • Shop the Celebration of Giving online registries - 2023 partners will be shared in fall 2023.
  • 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. 
  • Sponsor a shopping spree at a local toy store, with your company or group. We provide the wish list, and you provide the funds and the shoppers. 
  • Call the Celebration of Giving at 312-655-7401, or email for more information.
