toy drive for children in foster care

Join Let It Be Us as we collect toys for children in Illinois foster care and deliver them throughout the Northern Region of Illinois.

We are working together with the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services office in Waukegan, CASA of Lake County, and group homes and the gifts will be distributed to the neediest children. Collections are being taken at our headquarters, located at 145 West Main Street Barrington, Illinois 60010, from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm on Friday, December 16 and Saturday, December 17.

  • We request that toys be new and unwrapped.
  • The gift list will be updated frequently so check.
  • Donations of wrapping paper, ribbon, and tape would also be appreciated.

Thank you to those who are able to participate with us. For corporations who want to participate please contact Susan McConnell, Executive Director, at susanmcconnell@letitbeus.org.
