Provide gifts for children in need through the Adopt-A-Child Program

Bring Christmas cheer through gifts of clothing and educational toys/games to children enrolled at Esmond Elementary School and Saint Margaret of Scotland School. The gifts will be given to children from pre-kindergarten to second grade.

Additionally, children at both locations need donations of school supplies, educational games, and winter gear (hats, scarves, gloves). Monetary donations also are greatly appreciated, and checks can be made out to Saint Xavier University.

Please contact Margaret Schroeder at (773) 298-3900 or for a child’s name. All donations should be dropped off at the Mercy Ministry Center by Tues., Dec. 4.

Also, be on the look-out for “Santa” food donation bins throughout campus. Help us fill his “belly” with non-perishable foods that will be donated to Catholic Charities.

Our Chicago neighbors are truly thankful for the generosity exhibited by the Saint Xavier community each and every Christmas season!
