The children receiving gifts are children receiving services at the Children’s Reception Center. They range from age 0 – 17, and are referred by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services, local police, the juvenile justice system or other child welfare agencies.
Many of these children are entering the child welfare system for the first time. These will be the only gifts they receive this holiday season. Twist is excited to say the toys from the drive were delivered this morning, and nothing fills us with more holiday spirit.
We wish you a very merry holiday season, from our Twist family to yours.
