For 19 years in December, Waukegan Township and Shawall Temple # 165, have co-sponsored a Children’s Holiday Shopping Spree. One hundred children from Waukegan Township are invited to participate in the day’s fun-filled activities. Waukegan Township Employees, Shawall Temple, and local volunteers chaperone the day’s activities.
Last year the children enjoyed a full day at Jump America. They received breakfast, enjoyed lunch, received Toys from Toys From Tots, and played games at People’s Choice Fun Center.
In previous years, the children receive breakfast at Park Place, a shopping trip to Target where they’ll select their own clothing, a pizza party, and games at People’s Choice Fun Center, ice cream from Baskin Robbins of Waukegan and entertainment by Singing Santa.
Children’s safety is one of Waukegan Township’s top concerns, which is why every year the goal is to provide a fun and safe event for the children to enjoy.
