355. VIDEO: Barrington Giving Day Volunteers Bring Goods, Gifts & Joy to Barrington 220 Families in Need

Thousands of Barrington 220 children and parents will be having a brighter – and warmer – holiday season thanks to the efforts of hundreds more volunteers behind Barrington Giving Day. The annual day of giving took place Saturday at Station Middle School where those in need came to receive needed goods and gifts, warm coats and more, donated by the community.

Post 900 - Barrington Giving Day 2015-1

BHS Senior Gus Goetze pitches in to help the cause each year and created this video to highlight the giving spirit of Barrington Giving Day.

Barrington Giving Day is a 501c3 Non-Profit organization that invites families on the Free and Reduced lunch program in the 220 School District to Giving Day Events (A Back to School event in the summer and a Holiday event in December) where they receive items like food, warm coats, hats/gloves, blankets, clothes, books, toys, gifts and other much needed items. In 2013, Barrington Giving Day provided help to over 1,000 families that included 3,000 children, and senior citizens. Each year the need is greater.
