With 174 residents in our three facilities, we would have quite the list for Santa!

Help give the Jolly Old Elf a hand by supporting our Gift Drive and Giving Tree program. Each of our residents has a personal wish list, and these items are featured on individualized tags that  hang on Marklund’s holiday trees, and other trees throughout the community.

Annual Holiday Gift Drive/Residential Wish Lists
With our visitor restrictions in place, we had to make a few changes to our gift drive, the process for picking up individual resident gift tags at each campus as well as delivering those items. For those interested in participating this year, we have created residential wish lists by each home. You may click the link below to the home that you are interested in viewing and add your name and email directly to the live form next to the resident. We also have a Giving Tree at Bloomingdale Park District and The Bike Rack in St Charles–these are the only trees with gift tags up in the community due to COVID restrictions, and many businesses being closed to inside service.

If you are unable to access or edit the form please email cnikrandt@marklund.org with the resident’s name and your contact info and I will add your information.

Also, as the entire state is currently in Tier 3 mitigation which encourages everyone to stay home to reduce the spread of the virus, we ask that you have gifts shipped to our Geneva Campus and we will sort from there and get them to each resident’s home. Please return all gifts by December 17th.
