Can you believe it’s almost Christmas?  HA HA!  Just kidding.  Not really, though, because, let’s face it, the holiday season IS right around the corner.  And little elves (a.k.a. “organized people”) in the Barrington area are already hard at work planning ways to help our neighbors in need make it through the holdays with warm coats and presents under the tree.  Last year was the first year I volunteered at Barrington Giving Day and I learned, first hand, that there are a LOT of people in our own community who need our help.

Giving Day is a day coming up in December when families living in Barrington School District 220 can come out to receive boxes of food, warm coats, blankets, books, and gifts for the holidays.  Can I tell you how moving it is to see little kids in line with their families waiting to see the toys our community has donated?  The kids have their eyes on the presents as their parents zero in on the coats.  I’ll be there again this year, for sure.  But there’s much to be done to start getting ready and here’s one way we can all help kick off Barrington’s giving season with a bang. Check your closets four outgrown coats and find toys that could bring joy to other kids nearby and drop them off at Barrington High School tomorrow night.  Football players and volunteers will be collecting new and gently used toys and winter coats for kids and adults outside Broncos Stadium before the big football games tomorrow night.

Last year, Barrington Giving Day served 900 families, including 2,500 children.  Wow!

Both the Sophomore and Varsity football teams play Palatine at home tomorrow night.  The Sophomore game is at 5PM and the Varsity game, which is going to be a good one, starts at 7:30.  You’ll find the high school at 616 W. Main Street and you can learn more about the community coat and toy drive by visiting BarringtonGivingDay.org.
