Each December Barrington Giving Day invites families on the Free and Reduced lunch program in Barrington School District 220 to a Giving Day; here they receive food, winter coats, hats, gloves, blankets, books, toys and other much needed items. Over 1,000 families and children are helped each year.

  • A cash donation of $100 provides a family with a box of food
  • A $250 donation sponsors a family of 4

Your donation what every the amount, is much needed and greatly appreciated.

Over 98% of cash donations are spent on the families. Approximately 1% is used for postage to mail out invitations to the families.
