Help us spread the holiday cheer with the help of Metropolitan Family Services.


Donate to Metropolitan Family Services DuPage Holiday Gift Program to provide assistance to DuPage-area families in need. Your participation in the Holiday Gift Program allows families who cannot afford to purchase gifts to experience the joy of the holiday season.  For over 20 years, this program has helped provide toys and essentials to Metropolitan’s DuPage families who otherwise would not have the opportunity to give gifts to their loved ones. What you can do…bring a NEW unwrapped gift to distribute to Metropolitan’s families in need.

Items needed include winter outdoor accessories, (gloves, hats, scarf), toiletries, hoody sweatshirts, and pajama pants (ages 13-17), and winter outdoor accessories, robes, slippers, and lap blankets for seniors.  Please see specific details below.  We request gift cards (minimum of $25) per child or senior.

We will be accepting donations from Nov. 20 through Dec. 20.

Teens and seniorsfrom Metropolitan Family Services will also find joy through donated gift items that are collected in the COD Cares bins in the SSC Atrium. As with the Humanitarian Service Project gifts, these will be wrapped by COD Action Heroes at the GIVING GARLAND HOLIDAY EVENT on Thursday, Dec. 18.
