The event celebrated the Christian observance of Epiphany, or the 12th day after Christmas.

The toy hand-out was hosted by La Quinta de Los Reyes restaurant. The event was switched from in-person to a drive-through format due to concerns about COVID-19 amid surge in omicron variant cases in Illinois.

Volunteers at the La Quinta de Los Reyes event kept warm under heat lamps and made popcorn for the guests.
