Join us for refreshments, live music and holiday cheer from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.! But there’s more to this party than having a good time. Local 802 is collecting toys, clothes and food for charity. Every person who donates will receive a free raffle ticket. The winner and prize will be announced at the party.

Here’s what’s needed: canned and non-perishable food items, baby food, new toys and clothes. There is also a special request for the following items: ethnic dolls, cars, trucks, basketballs, board games, new hardcover books, art supplies, puzzles, action figures, sports equipment, craft sets, Legos, blocks and sports team shirts (sizes small, medium or large).

The charities are City Harvest and the Federation of Protestant Welfare Charities. Bring your donations in advance to Kimeo Lee on the third floor of the union building, or bring them directly to Local 802’s holiday party on Dec. 16. Be sure to ask for your raffle ticket when you drop off your donation.
