11th Annual Holiday Gift Drive - Nov. 1 - Dec. 5
Many of the adults who live in our community homes do not have family outside of Neumann staff and other members.

Gifts are due Monday, December 5, 2016. Please drop them off UNWRAPPED to our main facility, 5547 N. Ravenswood, Chicago, between 9am and 5pm Monday thru Friday.
