On Saturday, the Community Service Team of the New Democrats for Plainfield held its Holiday Party and Toy Drive for the children of the Elm-West Residents Association in the Fourth Ward.
Santa and Mary Claus "HO-HO-HO-ed" and posed with the children during the gift distribution. Along
with fabulous toys, gift cards, and fellowship, the kids got to enjoy
loads of delicious pizza from Italian Village Pizza (thanks, Giuseppe!),
cupcakes, and soft drinks.
really want to thank Carol, Jim, Jennifer, Inez, Bob, Frank, Liz, Mary,
Greg, Linden, Karen, Paul, Shep, Tatum, Warren, John, Jan, Jeanette,
Patricia, Ursula, Anthony, Breanna, Dee, Juanita, Dan, Nat, Adrian,
Amelia, and Marion for donating toys and gift cards.
I want to thank Ethel, Ursula,
Breanna, and Carmencita for coming to help out, Lenore and Holly of Jack and Jill, Inc., for "donating" Malcolm and Kenyon, who assisted with serving pizza and gift distribution.

Adrian Mapp stopped by to offer greetings, and Randy Wood of the
Housing Authority of Plainfield came to say hello and offered thanks to
the New Democrats Community Service Team for its efforts.
indefatigable Carol (The Antler Lady) deserves a special thanks for her
hard work. Ethel, Joann Hollis, Michelle, and the rest of the Elm-West
team lent their talents to making this Christmas a wonderful and
enjoyable one for all the kids--thanks, everyone!
