This week we will have an in-person business meeting at Continental Restaurant simultaneously with a zoom meeting at 12:15.  Please see Lisa's email for the zoom link and agenda. We will also welcome Chrissy Trilling-Raices and Lauren Chilvers from OMNI, a Community Grant recipient who will also talk to us about their holiday drive that has already begun and our members have supported in the past.
OMNI's annual Holiday Gift Drive is back!
 
Last year, charitable givers helped us provide gifts to over 500 kids in OMNI's communities.
 
This year, we're hoping to match -and even exceed- that number by providing gifts to over 500 kids facing issues like poverty, domestic violence, mental health challenges, and other crises.
 
There are multiple ways to give for every budget, time commitment, and level of involvement!
Groups are welcome to join in on the fun too! 
Not a big shopper? Donate directly!
We'll shop for you.
 
If you donate to the Holiday Gift Drive, your donation goes directly toward purchasing holiday gifts for kids in OMNI's communities!
Want to give a gift, but can't adopt?

Great for folks short on time, shopping our
Amazon Wishlist is another way to donate a gift
this holiday season!
Adopt a child...or ten!
The most popular way to give during our
Holiday Gift Drive is to "adopt" a local child.
 
OMNI provides the name, age, and wishlist of child.
 
You provide the gift(s)! On average, givers spend $50 per adoptee. Charitable givers have until Monday, December 12 to shop and drop-off or ship gifts (wrapped or unwrapped) directly to OMNI's Buffalo Grove location at:
1111 W. Lake Cook Rd. Buffalo Grove, IL
