Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local News

For the fifth consecutive year, the Hispanic Business Network (HBN) will host a toy drive at Morton College’s Jedlicka Performing Arts Center (3801 S. Central Ave., Cicero, IL 60804) on December 3rd, 2021 from 7p.m., to 10p.m., to collect presents for children of Little Village, Belmont Cragin, and South Chicago communities. Given the unpresented circumstances brought by a pandemic year, HBN members and volunteers expect a greater need this holiday season and will collect gifts for families in most need. Their goal is to collect over 500 presents. “One of the core values of the HBN is community involvement. This year we are proud to partner with Morton College and bring joy to children and families this Christmas,” said Rogelio Lopez, President of HBN.  HBN will collaborate with Morton College to serve as a drop off location. The collected toys will be distributed with the help of Santa to four different schools: 

• Gallistel Academy, South Chicago

• Eli Whitney Elementary, Little Village

• Little Village Academy, Little Village 

• Lloyd Elementary, Belmont Cragin
