2017 Peggy Eisenstein Holiday Gift Program

As a foster parent, a volunteer and a member of our Board of Directors, Peggy Eisenstein took great pride and found great joy in spearheading our annual Holiday Gift Program. With her own generosity, and the donations she collected from others, Peggy saw to it that every foster child and every youth living in Aunt Martha’s group homes and shelters celebrated the holiday season surrounded by gifts — and smiles.

We all know the chaos of the holidays. But amid all the stress, there will also be moments of tremendous joy. Some are fleeting, like the flicker of happiness in a child’s eye. Don’t let those moments pass you by. And please, don’t pass on this opportunity to bring that flicker to the eye of a child in need.

Give the Gift of Wonder
A Child

Your gift brings compassion and care to children who have been abused, neglected and abandoned.

Whatever their need or past hurts, Aunt Martha’s embraces more than 40,000 children each year with safety, shelter, medical care, a family or educational support.

Give Now
A Family

Your gift means giving a loving family to children without through our foster care services.

A gift that supports Aunt Martha’s families could also offer medical or dental care to an entire family. Every year, Aunt Martha’s and our supporters strengthen and improve the lives of 80,000 families.

Give Now
A Community

Your gift can be restricted to any of the 53 communities that Aunt Martha’s proudly serves.

No matter where you live, your donation can touch the lives of people in communities across Illinois, offering hope, healing, comfort and support to thousands of children and adults.
