Thanks to the tremendous support from the community and local businesses, the Village and Rotary Club International were able to help the less fortunate living right here in Bensenville. The Toy & Coat drive provided gifts and warmth to hundreds of families throughout the community. We would like to thank all the volunteers and contributors.
The Drive collects donations of new toys, new or gently used coats, and non-perishable food through the month of November. Many Bensenville civic organizations, businesses and private citizens also support the event with cash donations to help cover costs. Volunteers from Fenton High School Student Council, Blackhawk School and Faith Community Church Youth Organization all help gather, wrap, and distribute the toys.
