12 Days of Giving
Dec 2 – Dec 13 all-day

Once upon a time, there was a place with unsung heroes and disease filled villains. A place where the impossible becomes possible! With each page you turn, you’ll hear stories of courage, heartbreak and victory. These are the stories of kids and their caretakers at OSF HealthCare Children’s Hospital of Illinois. Stories about daring 4-year olds, valiant nurses and the monsters they encounter together. But above all else, these are stories of what happens when we come together to write the happy ending for all.

Toy Drive
Dec 7 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Even just one toy can bring a smile to a sick child. A new game, an action figure, blanket or stuffed animal often means the difference between a good day in the hospital and a bad one, especially during the holidays when children miss so much and many families struggle financially. Our annual toy donation drop-off day ensures each child at Christmas and throughout the year, has a gift to lift their spirits. Join us Saturday Dec. 7 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., in the lobby of OSF HealthCare Children’s Hospital of Illinois to drop off your toys. Enjoy holiday music, hot chocolate and cookies, make a craft and see Santa Claus. View the wishlist on the website.

During 12 Days of Giving – On December 12 and 13, we’ll also be broadcasting live from the hospital for our annual Radiothon with 93.3 The Drive. As we share these stories, our goal is to raise funds to help the team at OSF as they work tirelessly to help patients and their families.
