Illinois Tollway Staff Packs Santas Sled Through Toys for Tots
Continuing the Tollway’s annual tradition of supporting Toys for Tots, Illinois Tollway employees jumped in this holiday season to help Santa by bringing piles of toys, stuffed animals, games and sports equipment to Tollway headquarters for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve program.
Thanks to their efforts, more than 650 toys were collected in December to help ensure all children have a Merry Christmas in the Chicagoland area.
Tollway workers located across our 294-mile system, including those stationed at 12 maintenance sites, shopped individually for the perfect toys to help bring holiday cheer on Christmas morning to youngsters across the region. All the toys and games were collected and prepared for delivery to the Marine Reserve’s collection site in Aurora for distribution to children who might otherwise have lacked holiday presents.
The Tollway has long participated in the Toys for Tots program to help support youngsters in local communities by bringing a touch of holiday cheer that will last into the new year.
