During this holiday season join Chicago Child Care Society for our Tis’ the Season Toy Drive, in partnership with Toys for Tots Illinois and local Hyde Park toy store, Toys Et Cetera. It is our goal to collect and distribute more than 600 toys to the children, youth and families that we serve in the South Side and South Suburbs of Chicago. These toys that we provide are not about the latest and greatest on the market but about giving the gift of play with an educationally appropriate toy that will enhance and enrich the life of a child.

But how are we going to reach this goal? With YOUR help. There are FOUR different ways that you can give the gift of play:


Drop off a toy

You can bring an educational toy appropriate for ages 3 to 5 years of age to CCCS Hyde Park location (5467 S. University Ave.) and drop it into the bin labeled “Chicago Child Care Society Tis the Season Toy Drive.”


Purchase a toy at Toys Et Cetera & Double your gift

Purchase a toy online or in stores at local Hyde Park toy store, Toys Et Cetera, and they will match any toy that you give with an additional toy for Chicago Child Care Society.
