This December we fulfilled the wish lists of 21 children in foster care with the IL Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). Many thanks go to the 13 families (including LSUS visitors, members, and alums) who generously donated. Thanks also go to Peg Cartier, Kirsten Vogeley, and Bill Winschief, who helped me with gift storage and transportation to DCFS. As a special treat, when Kirsten and Bill dropped off a car load of gifts, they got to meet Denise Spires who founded and heads up the holiday program. They also got a few photos of DCFS staff and volunteers sorting the gifts.
