Our Annual Secret Santa toy drive has given the children of Chicago a chance to enjoy the holidays and we want to do it again in 2016! Please know that your participation is truly appreciated. Sprouting Leaders hopes to bring joy to those who need it most and expose the younger grades to our name and mentoring program in hopes that they will be a part of our team in the future.
Each student between Kindergarten & 5th Grade will be writing a letter to Santa asking for what they wish to receive. Keep in mind, these kids will be helped by their teacher in writing their letters and are aware that Santa is “on a budget” to be able to help spread the joy evenly among the kids. The letters will be collected from each student and emailed to you, their Secret Santa!
