The Shrine of Christ the King’s Carols and Candles Clothing and Toy Drive is visiting the University of Chicago this Friday, Dec. 9, to make it convenient for faculty and students to donate items for those in need this holiday season.

Gently used or new clothes for all ages and children’s toys can be brought to the university’s quad at noon to donate.

Donations can also be made to The Promontory, 5311 S. Lake Park Ave.; the First Unitarian Church, 5650 S. Woodlawn Ave., and at the Institute of Shrine of Christ the King, 6401 S. Woodlawn Ave., from now until Dec. 17.

On Saturday, Dec. 17, Shrine of Christ the King will host the Carols and Candles from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. The event will include hot chocolate and carol singing of holiday favorites to the lighted backdrop of the Shrine.
