You’re Invited: Walker Santa Holiday Toy Drive

Erin Jordan

This December, we’re asking for help from our friends and neighbors to make this holiday season brighter for others.

Walker Sands’ philanthropic arm, One Step Forward is hosting our inaugural toy drive and benefit event to support Beacon Therapeutic, an organization serving at-risk children – teens and their families in the Chicago area with academic programs and clinical therapies.


Please join us for a celebration on Thursday, December 12th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. CT in our Chicago office, located at 121 N. Jefferson St. in the West Loop. RSVP at

There are several ways to help!

  • Donate!

From December 2nd through December 12th, we will be collecting unwrapped toys for boys and girls ages 14 to 18 in our office between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. CT. We’ll also be collecting toys the evening of the 12th at our offices.

  • Host a box!

Walker Sands can drop off a toy drive box to your office before Thanksgiving, so your entire organization can participate – and even invite others!

  • Support through Amazon!

Too far to drop off a gift or come to the event? Purchase your gift through our Amazon registry and your gift will be shipped directly to Walker Sands!

  • Spread the word!

Please share our event with your social networks to spread the cheer. Show your support on social media using the hashtag #WalkerSanta.

Finally, to show our gratitude, we will place a snowflake in our front window with your company name for donations. For more information, or to have a holiday toy box delivered, please contact
