BYNC launches its Toy Drive Campaign
In 2011, we worked every day to make the Back of the Yards a better place. We created programs and delivered services that fill the needs of children, adults, senior citizens, businesses, and community partners alike. We worked to create a better place to live, a better place to grow up, a better place to shop and invest and a better place to grow old. Our work is often difficult, especially in today’s economic and social climate. While we are certainly proud of all our accomplishments, there is still a lot of work to be done, especially during the holiday season, a time when love and giving are the primary focus. In today’s economy, countless families in our community are struggling to make ends meet while providing a memorable Christmas for their families.
Each year, the BYNC launches a Christmas Toy Drive. Between November 1st and December 15th, the BYNC will be collecting toys and working with schools, local businesses, and other community organizations to identify children in need through our “Letters to Santa” program. Unfortunately, the demand for toys in our community always exceeds the donations we receive, so the BYNC relies on financial contributions to purchase additional toys.
As we are closing out the year, we ask that you consider supporting the Back of the Yards Neighborhood Council in its mission to make the Back of the Yards a better place for everyone, and to bring hope and opportunities to its residents during the holidays and throughout the year.
