Young Leaders Toy Drive 2017
Kristen Yunker, Coordinator of the Toys for Teens collection efforts for the Cook County Farm Bureau® Young Leaders group, said today “we have all been blessed in our lives and we appreciate the opportunity to give back to those in need during this holiday season.”
The Cook County Farm Bureau Young Leaders Group exceeded their goal of collecting 100 toys for teens when Young Leader members Jessica Biernacki and Kristen Yunker delivered 193 toys and $300 in donations to the Toy Box Connection charity this afternoon. The objective was to bring smiles to youth in need, ages 12 to 19, this upcoming Christmas. Charity director, Michelle Maxia, expressed gratitude for the efforts and generosity of the Farm Bureau members and organization. The Cook County Farm Bureau has supported charity for 10 years and the Young Leaders Group took over the benefit program efforts two years ago.
Young Leader Group Chair, Jessica Biernacki, said, “I was thrilled to be a part of this effort and the Young Leaders Group really appreciates the amazing generosity of the community!
