The holiday season is here, and Kids Above All is kicking off its annual Holiday Gift Drive. Beginning this week, Kids Above All, a nonprofit building better lives for young people and families in Cook, DuPage, Kane, and Lake counties, is seeking donations of new toys, books, and clothes for youth of all ages, as well as volunteer help so their children experience the joy of the holidays. All donations can be dropped off at Kids Above All’s new site, the A Better Life Distribution Center in Des Plaines. Can’t make it to Des Plaines but still would like to donate? No problem, our Amazon Wish List is available online. You can also volunteer your time to organize, sort, and bag gifts for delivery. For more information about the drive, visit www.kidsaboveall.org.  Each year, Kids Above All partners with individuals, businesses, community organizations, and faith groups to provide children who have experienced violence, poverty, and injustice with toys, books, and clothes during the holiday season. The Holiday Drive will run through December 13th and donations can be made to Kids Above All’s A Better Life Distribution Center, 1801 E. Oakton St., Des Plaines, IL. Volunteer opportunities are scheduled to begin Sunday, December 4. For more information or to reserve your volunteer spot contact Zulma Colon via email at zcolon@kidsaboveall.org or by phone by calling 773-867-7361.
