Peoria city employee union spearheads local A Day of Giving to bring the holiday to those in need

They call themselves The Relief Squad and they are not alone. City of Peoria AFSCME (American Federation of Federal, State, County and Municipal Employees) has joined The Relief Squad, The Holiday Squad and Chick-fil-A Arrowhead and half a dozen other organizations and businesses to host A Day of Giving from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 16 at Peoria Community Center, 8335 W. Jefferson St.
Those families who need holiday help are encouraged to go to the community center and get the help they need to make the holiday spirit a reality in their homes.
While the families in need are there, they will find toys, food, clothing, have their pictures taken with Santa, listen to music, do some cookie decorating and  gift wrapping, get their children’s faces painted, tour the fire truck and police cars — make a day of it.
The Relief Squad is putting out a request to the community for monetary donations along with new toys, non-perishable  food items, new  clothing (children and adults), school supplies, and whatever community members are willing to give.
All donations are tax-deductible and qualify for state charitable tax credit.
