Walker Sands Holiday Toy Drive

Walker Sands' philanthropy arm, One Step Forward, is hosting its annual toy drive and benefit event to support La Rabida Children's Hospital, an organization very close to our hearts.

Purchase your gift through our Amazon registry and your donation will be shipped directly to Walker Sands.

La Rabida Children's Hospital is the only of its kind in Chicago. They specialize in the treatment of chronic illnesses, developmental disabilities, abuse and trauma. 

We are collecting toys for a specific program called the Child and Family Connections Program. This program allows children to enter in Early Intervention, which is a collection of services for infants and toddlers who have delays in their development or who are at risk for developmental delays and their families.

The mission of La Rabida Children's Hospital is to provide care to children with lifelong medical conditions regardless of their family's ability to pay has been unwavering.

Today, La Rabida serves approximately 7,500 children annually who require primary and specialty care to address complex and challenging medical conditions.  Services and programs include treatment for chronic illnesses such asthma, diabetes, and sickle cell disease, and developmental disabilities through both inpatient and outpatient care. In addition, La Rabida specializes in the treatment of children who have been abused, neglected or experienced trauma.

With your generosity, we are tremendously excited and honored to help the children at this wonderful organization have a happy and special holiday this year.
