Grotto Collecting Books for Children

Grand Lodge of A.F. & A.M. of IL
December 21, 2012
As a general rule we do not pass information along for Appendant bodies but the timing of this is nearly perfect.
Books for children ages birth to teen are needed for the Pediatric Department of Dentistry at the Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center at Chicago. As you are trying to make room to display or store this year's Christmas items and you run across some new or gently used children's books, please consider donating them rather than throwing them out.
Please send them to:
Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center
c/o Dr. Harvey Wigdor, Director
811 W. Wellington Avenue
Chicago, IL 60657
