Allegiant Air To Host Toy/Gift Drive for Make-A-Wish® Illinois

Peoria, IL—Allegiant Air will be hosting a toy/gift card drive on Saturday, December 14 from 10:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at the HyVee Grocery Store in the Sheridan Village Shopping Center.

New, unwrapped toys, gift cards (to any major retailer) and other monetary donations collected will directly benefit Make-A-Wish® Illinois.

Make-A-Wish Illinois grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich their lives with hope, strength and joy. Since being founded locally in 1985, the chapter has granted more than 11,000 wishes and continues its mission to share the power of a wish® with special children across the state.

Allegiant Air, a national corporate partner of Make-A-Wish®, will be giving away two free tickets from Peoria to Tampa-St. Pete to a randomly drawn donor at the conclusion of the event on Saturday.

The Peoria International Airport will also host other free giveaways that day, plus host an appearance by a sun-loving Santa.
