Each December Barrington Giving Day invites families who are on the Free & Reduced Lunch program in Barrington School District 220 to a Giving Day. Here they receive boxes of food, warm coats, blankets, books, and gifts. Members of Barrington churches, schools, businesses and civic organizations are always generous in their support of this day. In 2013 Barrington Giving Day served 1,000 families. This included 3,000 children and senior citizens.

The need is greater each year.

Barrington is a unique community that works together to bring joy to others at this special time of year.


Barrington Giving Day will be holding a Halloween Bash on Saturday, October 25th 7:00pm at McGonigal’s Pub. Download flyer BGD Halloween Event for more information.
