A Very Special Thank You to the Vincent Babiarz Memorial Toy Drive!


We’d like to extend a huge thank you and congratulations to Su Bermingham, Emily Haite and Danielle Babiarz for hosting the 18th annual Vincent Babiarz Memorial Toy Drive this past Friday, making it one of their most successful years ever. It was truly a sight to see generous supporters packed into Murphy’s Bleachers with giant bags of goodies, some almost too large to carry. The brilliant family and friends of the annual toy drive contributed a massive quantity of raffle gifts and donations. Su spends months at a time organizing for this event each year— and Emily’s gathering such an array of prizes for the Sweet Home Chicago Raffle was no small feat. Lakeview Pantry is honored to provide new toys and, assist Coat Angels in finding warm coats for our young neighbors. What a wonderful start to the holidays!
