Lodge 512's "Christmas in July" for Children's Hospital in Omaha, Ne.
8/1/2010 "TCU Lodge 512 organized their first annual "Christmas In July" toy drive benefitting Children's Hospital and Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska. The toy drive ran from June 28th - July 9th and raised over 30 toys and $420 for the cause. We realize that community involvement is important for any organization and we felt that a toy drive would help our lodge and TCU to be better known in the community. It would again give our members a chance to show their spirit of giving and generosity in the Omaha area. We had similar drives for 14 years while headquartered in St. Louis that included Cardinal Glennon and Shriner's Hospitals. We couldn't be happier with the success of this year's toy drive and we look forward to this program growing exponentially in the future. Children's Hospital and Medical Center is an amazing organization with and incredible staff and purpose. Lodge 512 is honored to have initiated what we hope to be a great partnership for the future.
Thanks to everyone who participated.
