Excerpts from theyoujournal.com:
North Chicago Fire Department personnel delivered donations including care packages for young patients and their families to the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago.
A fundraiser for the patient gifts was organized after a member of the fire department experienced, firsthand, how the services provided by the hospital staff changed the lives of so many children.
“I am amazed by the Lurie Children’s Hospital staff, their knowledge, professionalism and moreover how they work each and every day bearing witness to these critically ill children,” said North Chicago Fire Department Lieutenant Kim Schaefer.
North Chicago Fire Chief Dell Urban was more than pleased with the generosity her staff displayed.
