Good Times and Record Fundraising at the A Christmas Story Foundation Run.
One of our favorite charitable fundraisers is the annual A Christmas Story Foundation Run. First Federal Lakewood was the presenting sponsor in 2017, and as always the event was filled with fun, community spirit, and generous giving.
It was also the most successful run to date. $99,319 was raised for A Christmas Story Foundation, a non-profit committed to restoring and maintaining the neighborhood surrounding the A Christmas Story House & Museum.
The foundation completed renovation projects on nine area homes in 2017. The dramatic improvements include all new siding for four different homes, with other houses getting everything from fresh exterior paint and porch repairs to new tile, new fencing and a host of miscellaneous upgrades and much-needed repairs.
