Eddie’s Partners with Spark of Love to Collect Toys & Gifts for Children & Teens

The holidays are extremely challenging ­for some families – both local and far. Limited resources, illness and natural disasters can make it difficult for some children, teens and family to celebrate.

Eddie’s Italian Eatery has decided to help relieve the stress for some families by hosting a holiday toy/gift drive for the local community. The restaurant has partnered with ABC7 and the Spark of Love Toy Drive to collect toys and gifts for distribution to local families in need.

Eddie’s is giving all patrons who bring in a new, unwrapped toy valued at $5 or more a free dessert.

After enjoying a meal at Eddie’s, such as Chicken Carbonara, Linguine & Clams or Tortellini Diavolo, guests who donate toys or gifts can enjoy several desserts such as Bourbon Bread Pudding, Cannoli, Cheesecake, Zookie Sundae and more for bringing in their toy.

Check out Eddie's dinner menu.

Eddie’s is collecting toys through Dec. 24.
