A representative from StageCoach Productions will share history on African American Cowboys, and the Buffalo Soldiers. 

The event is from 2:00PM to 4:00PM and items will be disbursed on a first come first serve basis. “This is our second toy drive in front of the Jackson Family home, and our 3rd year in Gary Indiana. We plan to decorate the street and hopefully next year it will be even bigger. I cannot help but think about how sad the Jackson brothers, especially Michael Jackson, and sisters were every Christmas due to their religion as Jehovah’s Witnesses; they could not participate in toy drives or receive toys for Christmas. Their father kept them working as performers on Christmas to keep their minds off the holiday”, said Mother Diva

The week long events are sponsored in part by Jewel/Osco (183rd & Kedzie Homewood, IL) Joliet Hope Center, (Joliet, IL) Reggio’s Pizza (85th & Cottage Chicago, IL)  Gus Giordano Dance School (Chicago, IL)

The event is dedicated to Toys for Tots volunteer John :”Jack Moon” Murazak who recently lost his life to gun violence due to suffering from mental illness.

The toy drive tour will wrap up on Thursday December 22, 2022 at the Hamilton Park Cultural Center, from 2:00pm to 4:00pm located at 513 W. 72nd St. Chicago, IL  .For More Details see Flier
