Illinois Railway Museum
In conjunction with two local
Habitat for Humanity groups, we are again involved with the Thomas the Tank Engine Event at the Union Train museum. We are supplying volunteer labor for the event in return for a generous
donation from the Train Museum to the PADS operations account. In order to fulfill the need, it is necessary to recruit a total of 300 volunteers. Our goal is to recruit approximately 20 volunteers per day or 100 total volunteers provided by PADS.
The response from the volunteers
that joined us for this fundraiser the last two years has been very positive.
There are numerous positions to
be filled by individuals 16 and older. Complete details are available by calling Doris at the PADS office at
Can you spare 1 day (or more) to
help us with this event? Please, do
whatever you can to help us with this fundraising effort.
We thank you for your continued support of the PADS
