Partake in the season of GIVING!

Give – and receive – thanks.

That’s what the HOLIDAY SEASON is all about! So, let’s be thankful for all that we have, and also, give back to our community. Luckily, Friends of Mayer has some amazing opportunities for you to do just that!

We know it is a busy time for everyone, but remember: a little giving goes a long, long way. And, the below opportunity is the perfect way to share joy and cheer:

“There Really is a Santa Claus”

A beautiful charity run by Oscar Mayer parents, Jen Jones and Matt Beresh

Providing a gift during the holidays is next to impossible for many in Chicago. Bulldog Heroes invites you to participate in making their wishes come true either by purchasing gifts with donated funds or wrapping them. Volunteers can shop for families using pre-determined lists in their letters to Santa and pre-paid gift cards and/or wrap gifts.


Shopping  will take place on:

Friday, December 11th at Target on Elston (6:00 pm-8:00pm)

Sunday, December 13th at Target on Elston (10:00am-12:00 pm)


Gift wrapping will take place from 6:00pm-8:00pm on:

Tuesday, December 15th

Wednesday, December 16th

Thursday December 17th

Location details for gift wrapping will be given directly to volunteers.
