The holidays look a bit different this year for Heart of Illinois Big Brothers Big Sisters. We can't safely host our annual Holiday Party for matches, but that doesn't mean we can't provide our families with gifts and necessities! We invite you to participate in our two-week Gift Card Drive from Monday, November 23rd-Sunday, December 6th. During this time, we are working with local business partners and individual supporters alike to collect gift cards of all kinds. After the drive is over, we will distribute the gift cards amongst our participating families to use for the holiday season.
For those who would prefer not to brave the holiday crowds, we are here to make things easy! All you have to do is buy a gift card(s) below and BBBS will purchase the physical gift cards for you. Even though times are tough and uncertain, we want our Littles to experience joy this holiday season with presents under the tree, and to also help our families with basic necessities such as food and gas.
