Charitable Fund to Hold Toy Drive Dec. 15 Before Membership Meeting

The Teamsters Local 727 Charitable Fund will be hosting a Holiday Toy Drive and collecting new, unwrapped toys before the upcoming Local 727 general membership meeting on Sunday, December 15.  Collected toys will be donated to children and teens undergoing treatment at Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.

“The holidays are a time when children should be able to experience the enchantment and joy of the season.  Sadly, for some children fighting illness or undergoing painful medical procedures, frightening and confusing treatments or hospitalization can overshadow the magic of the holidays,” said Charitable Fund President Tony Wendel.  “With the help of our Teamster Family, the Charitable Fund hopes to bring the spirit of the season to the children of Lurie Children’s Hospital.”

Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago has asked for items suitable for children of all ages, including teens.  Due to infection control, the Hospital CANNOT accept stuffed animals or soft-surface toys.  All toys must be NEW and in their original packaging. 

Members with questions should contact Maggie Ward at (847) 696-7500 or [email protected].

The Teamsters Local 727 Charitable fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Federal Tax ID: 82-4859112.
