The Holiday Food and Gift Basket Program has seen record-breaking numbers of 890 families this year. Last year we had 847 families in the Oak Park-River Forest area. We still have 67 families to be sponsored. Of those 67, we have 25 individuals simply requesting gift cards. We have families of two up to families of six. Sponsors are asked to spend up to $50 per person. Upon receiving the family’s wish list, the sponsor would shop, wrap and deliver the gifts to United Luthern Church in Oak Park before Dec. 15.

Gifts will be delivered to the families on Saturday, Dec. 15, beginning at 8 a.m. If you are interested in sponsoring a family or an individual, please call the Holiday Food and Gift Basket Program at 771-6159 x244.
