Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2017 From CWA Local 4250/CTU #16 Officers/Executive Board And CWA Local 4250/CTU #16 Retired Members' Chapter Officers
December 2016 - CWA Local 4250/CTU #16 Community Services & Woman’s Committee
CWA Local 4250/CTU #16 has donated to the Lake County Police Association Local 72, "A Christmas to Remember/Shop with a Cop". Names of needy families with children, ages 5 to 16 years old, are submitted by local schools. The children are then paired with a Police Officer with Local 72 Police Union, and are taken shopping at the Meijer store in Merrillville IN, which helps by giving a significant discount on their purchases. Each child can pick out a new toy and the remainder being spent on necessities such as warm clothing, coats and boots. The day finishes with a donated meal at Outback Steak House for the kids and their families. The day provides an opportunity for kids to get to know police officers in a positive way, and in a way that impacts the entire family. Lake County Police Assoc. Website
