A few days before Thanksgiving, some of Santa’s elves gathered at St. James the Apostle church in Glen Ellyn for this year’s wooden toy give away. Members of the DuPage Woodworkers club gave several non-profits more than 2,500 handmade wooden toys. First Light host Brian O’Keefe went to the 2017 giveaway. The charity and dedication of the club and its members quickly made this one of Brian favorite holiday season stories.

Even before the Thanksgiving turkey was on the table…a group of local craftsmen got together in Glen Ellyn to make sure hundreds of Chicago area children wakeup Christmas morning to find something special under the tree. First Light host Brian O'Keefe was there when the DuPage Woodworkers Club delivered hundreds of handmade toys to local non-profits.
