IBEW 21 Days of Giving Update
We would like to thank all of our members, retirees and friends of IBEW 21 who donated to our IBEW 21 Days of Giving - Back to School supply drive. Your generosity was overwhelming. You donated nearly $3,000 and many boxes and bags filled with school supplies.
Shannon and our members at JULIE did
a great job collecting supplies for the kids!
We reached our goal of providing 100 backpacks to the 100 families who lost their homes during the Coal City tornado. You also provided supplies to kids served by Crittenton Center in Peoria, My Joyful Heart in Mokena, and Mercy Home in Chicago. The representatives from all of the organizations you helped are extremely grateful for your support.
You proved that IBEW 21 members are making a difference in the communities where we live and work. You can read about the difference you are making for the kids at My Joyful Heart here and an article that appeared in the Coal City Courant here.
A big thank-you goes out to Gary and Chris from the Morris garage who helped pack and deliver the backpacks to the kids in Coal City.
