Illing was delighted to once again partner with Christmas Clearing Council of Waukesha County (CCC), to sponsor six Lannon/Sussex-based families and assist them in buying gifts for their children this holiday season.
CCC is an organization that began over 70 years ago with the goal of making sure ALL children in Waukesha County and the surrounding areas get to experience the magic and joy of Christmas. The happiness a child feels on Christmas when running down the hall to find presents is immeasurable, and yet some families facing hardships might not have the opportunity to provide this joy for their children for various reasons.
The Illing team was able to pull together and make a difference in these children’s lives, whose families otherwise may not be able to afford gifts this year. Illing originally planned to adopt 5 families, but those children were almost immediately sponsored by Illing employees, and we were able to bring on a 6th family for sponsorship!
Together, we were able to sponsor 13 children and gift them with some holiday cheer and magic. Gifts ranged anywhere from gift cards, dinosaur toys, clothing, books, dolls, gaming gear, baking items, Lego sets, art supplies, and more! It was an amazing blessing to give back to our community and help families in need have a remarkable holiday with their loved ones.
