Sweet Home Chicago Gingerbread House Donations

October 17, 2022 @ 8:00 am - December 5, 2022 @ 5:00 pm

Decorate your very own Sweet Home Chicago Gingerbread house!

From the comfort of your home, decorate your very own gingerbread house. Join hundreds of youngsters who will attend the 19th annual Sweet Home Chicago benefit at The Four Seasons Chicago.

Since 2004, Sweet Home Chicago has raised over $11 million to support WINGS safe houses, single family homes and apartments for two-year stays; individual and family counseling; and other programs to help DV survivors regain their independence.

Make a donation today. For each $135 tax-deductible contribution, WINGS will send you or someone on your gift list a Sweet Home Chicago gingerbread house decorating kit. Shipping via UPS included.

Share photos and videos of your children’s decorated gingerbread houses at #SweetHomeFamilies.

Place your order for one or more gifts no later than Monday, December 5, 2022.
