Our initiative to surprise school children in our community with gifts for the holiday.
For the 4200 students we’ve surprised with holiday cheer, it may very well be when the Daisie Foundation came to their school with thousands of exciting presents and cozy winter accessories.
Each December, we partner with an often overlooked schools within an underserved community to provide a holiday party their Pre-K through 8th Grade students have never before experienced.Gifts of toys, books, games, and holiday treats are delivered with the help of Santa and Mrs. Claus, while faculty and staff are invited to enjoy a special luncheon complete with their own holiday gifts – all through the help of our generous volunteers, sponsors, and Daisie partners. In the past, we’ve served Little Village Academy and the Montessori School of Englewood – but we’re just getting started. Join us this year as we double our previous efforts by serving more schools in the Englewood, Austin and Humboldt Park communities of Chicago, just in time for the holidays. Because, for some, the best memories start with Daisie.
- Over the years, we’ve impacted the lives of over 4200 students through our collaborations with the various community elementary schools.
- Focusing on grades Pre-K through 8th, we provide a full day of holiday cheer as students receive gifts of exciting toys and much needed winter accessories
- We also surprise faculty and staff with a holiday luncheon each year to show our gratitude for their hard work and commitment to not only education, but also to the often overlooked and challenging communities which they have chosen to serve
