Calling all big-hearted union members! We are looking for lots of Santa’s helpers to donate unwrapped toys for children from infants to age 16.
The toys will be included in holiday baskets, which are prepared each year by the AFL-CIO Community Services of Central MD. Baskets are given to our fellow union members who are in need and/or suffering financial hardship this Christmas season. Each member will receive a Giant gift card to purchase a ham or turkey along with a basket filled with food. Members with children will receive a gift for each child up to 16 years of age.
Local 24 member Blaine Boone, who is the director of AFL-CIO Community Services of Central MD, said “The toys given to the children of families bring so much joy to those who need it most during the holiday season. And we need your help to ensure that that joy continues this year.”
Community Services is located on the first floor of IBEW Local 24’s building, so if you are coming by the hall for a meeting or referral you can easily drop off your toy donation.
If you don’t get into Baltimore much, please consider buying a toy online and shipping it to:
