Thanks to the tremendous support from the community and local business the Village, Rotary Club International and Youth Coalition were able to help the less fortunate living right here in Bensenville. The Toy & Coat drive was able to provide gifts and warmth to hundreds of families throughout the community. We would like to thank some of our largest supporters and contributors: ABC Bank, Action Bag , Agility Logistics, Bensenville Chamber of Commerce, Bensenville Senior Citizen Club, Century Metal Spinning, Creative Werks , Crown Services, Fenton Student Council, Gullo International, Hair Shapers, Purolator, Teamster Horsemen Motorcycle Association, Victory Auto Wreckers.
The Drive collects donations of new toys, new or gently used coats, and non-perishable food through the month of November. Many Bensenville civic organizations, businesses and private citizens also support the event with cash donations to help cover costs. The Senior Citizen Club kick-off the Drive each year at their November lunch, bringing generous supplies of toys and gifts. Volunteers from Fenton High School Student Council, Blackhawk School and Faith Community Church Youth Organization all help gather, wrap, and distribute the toys.
