PostSubject: CAMM Volunteer Opportunity   November 9th 2016, 10:45 am

Sunday, November 20 at 10 AM

404 W Army Trail Rd, Bloomingdale, IL 60108-1379, United States


CAMM is being invited to help out with a local Toys for Tot drive. Please read all the details and let me know if you can make it out.


Hello Members of CAMM –

My name is Matt Passero. My wife and I along with our children have volunteered for Toys For Tots for several years. We are known as “Team Passero.” We were introduced to CAMM through Arnold and Jean Orlowski. Like in years past, we are organizing a shopping event at Toys R Us.

Thus, we have great opportunity for a small group of CAMM members to be a part of a Toys For Tots event at a Toys R Us. Basically, you will need to be “Secret Santas” and make gift buying decisions for Toys for Tots. The actual purchase would be made by us, the authorized purchasing agents for DuPage County Toys For Tots. Therefore, there is no cost to you. We just need your creativity.

You would need to arrive at Toys R Us located at 404 W. Army Trail Road, Bloomingdale, IL 60108 by 10am on Sunday, November 20th. This is the Sunday prior to Thanksgiving. Once all have arrived, you will be given the parameters of the shopping goals. It usually takes two plus hours to make our selections. This isn’t an easy task if you think that this could be the only toy a child could receive for Christmas.

Please bear in mind, the store will be open to regular shoppers. We will have a “staging area” to put shopping carts once they are full and be able to retrieve more carts. After purchases are made, we will need help loading the toys onto our trailer. If the weather is nice, it would be a great photo opportunity for Mopar pictures.

At the time this letter is written, we do not have a physical warehouse location. Each year our warehouse space is donated. Our deal for this year hasn’t come through. Otherwise, you will be invited to come back to the warehouse (aka Santa’s Workshop) to see the behind the scenes. And yeah, help unload all the toys we just purchased.

In order to participate in this activity, a signed “GSA” form is required by Toys For Tots for each person. A copy of the form is attached to this letter. Please let Jean Orlowski, our CAMM contact, know no later than Monday, November 7th if you can join us for this event.
If you have any questions or need any additional information, please contact us at (630) 546-1767. If you would like to learn more about DuPage County Toys For Tots, please feel free to ask us or visit dupage-il.toysfortots.org.

Thank you in advance for your support.
Matt and Sharon Passero (“Team Passero”)

If you will be attending this I need an email sent to chicagolandareamodernmopars@gmail.com letting me know that you are coming, how many people you are bringing with you, and will you be bringing your Mopar for the photo opportunity. I will email the GSA form to you and you will need to sign and bring it with you the day of the event. I will try to remember to bring a few extra but no promises.

After the event is over we will be hanging out at:

Dave and Busters
1155 N Swift Rd, Addison, IL 60101

Since we are not sure how long the event at Toys R Us will last nothing is being set up in advance at Dave and Busters. Those that want to go I will post up when we are heading over. Since Matt said it will take at least 2 hours I would not plan on us being there until 1230 at the earliest but probably more like 1 or 130 pm.

Depending on what size group ends up going we will try to get tables together, its all on what they can do for us as we get there.

If you do want or can not attend the Toys for Tot part of the day you are still welcome to come hang out at Dave and Busters.

Heads up I have not packed for my trip yet so I will not be attending after the event is over. If anyone wants to go afterwards I would talk about it together at the event.

Was a good day, spent some money and got a lot of toys for kids that really really need it. Will make this an annual thing as long as we are asked back.
