Holiday Helper Child Sponsorships
Make the holidays brighter for a local child through the Holiday Helper program!
Each year, the Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning partners with local organizations to identify children in need. In conjunction with each partnering agency, the children and their families identify personal wants and needs. The center then asks Illinois State students, faculty, and staff to help sponsor each child by purchasing gifts for them valuing approximately $50.
The gifts are wrapped during wrapping parties at the center and later delivered at holiday parties held at each local organization.
This year, the center has 277 local children in need of sponsorship through Holiday Helper. Sponsorship is open until all children have sponsors. Gifts are due back at the center on Nov. 27.
To sponsor a child, visit the center at 300 W. North St. in Normal (on the corner across from the Watterson Dining Commons expansion).
