Your local firehouse at 80th & Kedzie in Chicago (BAND OF BROTHERS OF CHICAGO) has adopted four Chicago area homeless shelters located at 81st & Western, 88th & Paulina, 43rd & Mozart and 123rd & Parnell. These shelters house 67 families that have a total of 137 children ranging in age from 2 months to 17 years old. It is our hope to be able to deliver at least 1 Christmas gift to each of the children at the facilities. We invite you to join us in this worthwhile effort.
We will be collecting unused toys, clothing and coats until December 22nd and will personally deliver them to the facilities on Christmas day. If you choose to participate, you may either bring an unwrapped gift directly to the firehouse, 8026 S. Kedzie, Chicago, or call us by December 19th and we will be happy to pick it up locally. Our telephone number is 1-773-612-4980. Please call us with any questions that you might have.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and for remembering that this is the season for giving.
