Welcome to Elgin’s Hope for Holidays 2020 Website!

Important Registration Notice!

Registration to receive toys closed as of November 30th. However, we do have an active waitlist in the event we have excess toys. If you are a family in need that did not previously register for Hope for the Holidays with either the Community Crisis Center or the Salvation Army Elgin Corps, please complete our wish list form by clicking here and following all the directions. We will contact you with information on whether we were able to fill your waitlist.

The Community Crisis Center and the Salvation Army Elgin Corps Community Center are excited to announce a brand new collaboration for the 2020 holiday season! In this new partnership the two agencies, along with their various supporters, will combine resources to support families in need throughout the greater Elgin area with toys for the holidays.

While past clients of the Salvation Army Elgin Corps may be familiar with the advance registration and toy pick-up process, for clients of the Community Crisis Center the procedure will look much different than in previous years. But don’t worry! We will guide everyone through the process, all while keeping our staff, volunteers, and families safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. For a quick preview of the process, head over to our Information for Recipients page.

Both agencies would like to extend their thanks to our past sponsors, volunteers, and community partners! We appreciate your past support, and hope to work with many of you again this year. For more information on partnering with Elgin’s Hope for the Holidays, please see our donation and volunteer links to the right.
