Advocates for Adolescent Mothers Holiday Drive and Social 2013
- This event has passed.
It’s a toy and coat drive. It’s a party. It’s bringing holiday cheer to homeless youth.
Enjoy drinks, appetizers, raffles, networking, and entertainment! All while helping make a difference in the lives of homeless children this holiday season! The toys and outerwear collected at our holiday drive locations and at our holiday social will be donated to the homeless youth programs at the Night Ministry, Beacon Theraputic, and ChildServ.
The Night Ministry is a Chicago based organization that offers housing, healthcare, and human services to Chicagoans struggling with poverty or homelessness.
