‘Tis the season of giving!
Today, we were visited by LauraJane Hyde, CEO of Gilda’s Club Chicago.
We want to take a moment to thank everyone who participated and supported the Forest Park Firefighters during our October Breast Cancer Awareness fundraising event.
We are happy to say that with your help, we were able to provide Gilda’s Club Chicago a donation of $4,500.00 from our T-shirt sales!
Thank you all for making this a huge success!
We look forward to continuing our new found friendship with Gilda’s Club Chicago! For more information, visit their Facebook page or www.gildasclubchicago.org!
A mailer was recently sent to many Forest Park homes addressed to “Current Resident” (white envelope, 2-page newsletter style). It has come to our attention that the mailer implicated the Forest Park Firefighters Union. To be clear, Forest Park FireFighters Local 2753 had no prior knowledge of the mailer, was not involved in the creation of the mailer, and does not condone the reprehensible, offensive content contained in the mailer.
