Once again, your support made the holiday season full of meaning and memories for our youth.
The 2018 holiday season was a truly memorable and exciting time for the children at SOS Children’s Villages Illinois, full of celebration and the spirit of generosity.
We were fortunate to gather in celebration for holiday parties at each of our Villages. Volunteers led holiday games and activities, while donors and corporate partners helped make the family fun possible. The children enjoyed creating happy holiday memories with dancing, crafts, and visiting with Santa.
Casa Tepeyac Celebrates Posada Navideña with Back of the Yard Community
Casa Tepeyac hosted its annual Posada Navideña, sponsored by the SOS Illinois Associate Board, on December 20, 2018. We were thrilled to be joined by nearly 100 community members who took part in the Posada procession, and about 250 participants at the Posada celebration. The event featured music, piñatas, delicious Mexican food, and most importantly, the friendship and family that Casa Tepeyac builds in the Back of the Yards community.
Heartfelt Gratitude to our 2018 Holiday Giving Sponsors
Finally, we cannot express enough the gratitude we have for all of the donors to our 2018 Holiday Giving Program. Your generosity made it possible for every child in our care to open a gift during the holiday season. Thank you for showing the children that others are thinking of them and for helping us teach them the power of generosity and giving.
