Members of Chicago Fire Fighters Union Local 2 are reaching out to help Illinois children with life-threatening medical conditions by collecting donations at major intersections to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Illinois. Funds raised will support the Make-A-Wish mission of granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich their lives with hope, strength and joy.

Latest Status Update

  • A special Make-A-Wish supporter recently stopped by our office to show her support by donating $50 for children with critical illnesses! After seeing a sign at a Hamra Enterprises Panera Bread, she knew she had to help. "I dropped in a quarter [that day] because I wanted to make a kid's day." At her birthday party, she and forty of her friends also helped to write cards for children about to go on their wishes. "These kids have it really hard, and they should be treated well and respected." She, in the past, has also donated to Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago and Moriah Congregation. Thank you so much for making wishes come true!
