Are you hosting a gift drive at your school, office or church? Here are some "Best Practices" to help make you drive a success!

  • Designate an individual or team to lead your group’s collection efforts.
  • Advertise a collection location/box and deadline.
  • Encourage participation by setting a team goal or make the collection into a competition between departments.
  • Coordinate a holiday event and ask participants to write a holiday greeting/note of encouragement to the Club members.
  • We recommend collecting items in November and early December so that items can be delivered to BGCC by Monday, December 12, 2016.
  • Please coordinate delivery or drop-off of the items December 5 – 12th by contacting Andrea Chwee: achwee@bgcc.org or 312-235-8015. (Alternative dates can be coordinated, if needed.)
  • Main Collection Location: James R. Jordan Club, 2102 W. Monroe, Chicago, IL 60612 (no weekend deliveries, please)
