Gift drive for soldiers' families

text size: AAA

Belmont Village Senior Living Communities is hosting its annual toy drive benefiting Operation Homefront, which provides emergency financial and other assistance to families of service members and wounded warriors. The public is asked to drop off new, unwrapped toys at Belmont Village, 500 McHenry Road in Buffalo Grove, by Dec. 14. "Last holiday season we were told by several wives of military members that if it wasn't for the toys we donated, they wouldn't have had a Christmas for their kids," said Jeanne Hanson, senior executive director of Belmont Village. "This is the least we can do for these brave soldiers and their families." Toys and gifts should be new, unwrapped and age appropriate for infants up to 16 years old.
