The students collected roughly 800 gifts worth about $20,000 that came from letters students at the Richard J. Daley Academy in the Back of the Yards neighborhood sent to Santa.

Cary-Grove student Brian O'Conner enjoys participating in the event, saying: "This is the only gift they're probably going to get. … You know you're going to put a smile on their face."
