McHenry Sunrise Rotary promotes and coordinates toy delivery to families in need during the Christmas season.

Many families in McHenry County are desperately struggling due to unexpected job loss, death of a wage earner, divorce or abandonment, illness, disability or other crises. Children in these families might not otherwise experience the joy of a gift to unwrap on Christmas. Last year we helped over 2000 kids have a nice Christmas.

This program is open to families in McHenry county needing help with toys for their kids this Christmas. Due to demand and limited funds we need to restrict this program to  families that are unable to provide toys this Christmas and have kids from newborn to 12 years of age, living inYOUR household. We are unable to help any children above the age of 12 and may also need to restrict the number of gifs we can give to kids between 10 and 12.

We are unable to grant specific needs due to the amount of families we will be helping.

If you can help us help these families by donating money or your time along with tape and wrapping paper, please visit and click on the donate tab.
