In today’s economy, countless families in the Back of the Yards community are struggling to make ends meet while providing a memorable Christmas for their families.

Each year, the Back of the Yards Neighborhood Council (BYNC) launches a Christmas Toy Drive. Between November 1st and December 15th, the BYNC will be collecting toys and working with schools, local businesses, and other community organizations to identify children in need through our “Letters to Santa” program. Unfortunately, the demand for toys in our community always exceeds the donations we receive, so the BYNC relies on financial contributions to purchase additional toys.

As we are closing out the year, we ask that you consider supporting the Back of the Yards Neighborhood Council in its mission to make the Back of the Yards a better place for everyone, and to bring hope and opportunities to its residents during the holidays and throughout the year.
