Giving hope for those in need during the festive period
We are able to team up with the Chicago Bulls and some incredible organisations to deliver an annual Christmas toy drive supplying gifts to children from underprivileged and less fortunate backgrounds.
The Bulls coordinate the event as part of NBA Cares Season of Giving, a league-wide initiative that aims to brighten the holidays for thousands of children and families across the country. We are truly grateful that we can team up with such great organisations to be apart of a amazing initiative in a time of need and festivity to be able to be Gifted To Give.

The Chicago Bulls and the Black McDonald’s® Operators Association (BMOA) partnered with the Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) to host their 13th annual Kids Holiday Party on Sunday, December 2 at the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago (MSI). More than 400 children from the CHA’s family housing developments attended the event.
Luol Deng and Bulls representatives including Michael and Nancy Reinsdorf, Leslie Forman, Bill Wennington, Chuck Swirsky and Benny the Bull treated the children to lunch and tours of the museum exhibits including Science Storms, which features an interactive display that demonstrates the science behind shooting a basketball. Deng also personally purchased a gift for each of the more than 400 children and distributed them after the tours.
The Bulls also teamed up with the BMOA, Hinckley Springs and Edy’s® Grand Ice Cream to provide lunch for everyone.
