Ald. George Cardenas announces his 12th annual Toys for Kids celebration on December 21st, 2015 from 10 am till 1 pm at the True Value Club, 2950 W. 25th Street.
The Alderman will distribute over 3,000 toys this year in the effort to make everyone’s holidays more fun. Alderman Cardenas stated” The holidays are a time of giving. Receiving smiles from children is the greatest gift of all. As a community we must remember that neighbors share and care. I hope my residents have fun in a peaceful and giving manner this holiday season. Join me in making our communities stronger with every smile we give and receive this holiday season.”
All 12th ward residents are encouraged to bring children 10 years old and younger for a free toy. Children and adults will be thrilled to have free pictures with Santa.
