“Holidays are a peak time for joy for so many of us, but for our low-income families it often means unthinkable stress. The heartbreak of not being able to provide your child a gift is completely overwhelming. Please give if you are in the position to give.” Said CAPCIL Executive Director, Alison Rumler-Gomez.

If you are interested in making a donation to Holiday Hearts for Kids, please visit the website ( for contactless online payment options or by mailing a check to CAPCIL c/o Holiday Hearts for Kids 1800 5th Street Lincoln, Illinois 62656.
