Mary’s Court, Isiah Thomas’ family foundation, is partnering with the Marillac Social Center for the Third Annual Holiday Toy Giveaway in the former NBA star’s hometown of Chicago. Each year Mary’s Court looks forward to this annual toy and clothing drive because it brings much needed cheer to the children in Chicago who are so deserving.
The toy giveaway will benefit Chicago youth ranging from ages 2-16. Thomas will be on hand for the holiday event, distributing toys, books and clothing to the children.
Marillac Social Center provides vital programs and services in the areas of child development, social services, family services, senior services and youth programs. Thomas’s mother was a longtime supporter of Marillac Social Center, and he founded the family foundation in her honor.
In addition to Thomas’ Annual Holiday Toy Giveaway, Mary’s Court Foundation will also be donating toys to Our Lady of Sorrows Basilica in Chicago.
Further details will follow but if you are interested in donating please email us or visit our donation page.
